* AwardSnub: ZigZagged. Williams's five UsefulNotes/{{Academy Award}}s are more than enough to do any career proud. He also holds the record for most Academy Award nominations of any living individual, with 50 [[note]]most recently for ''Film/TheForceAwakens''[[/note]]. While even a nomination is an honor, FridgeLogic dictates that this means he's gone home empty-handed ''45 times''. Ouch?

He has had two scores from the same year nominated in the same category eight times. This means that, out of his 50 nominations, there were eight of them that he ''couldn't'' have won, regardless of if he did win that year, bringing his count of potential Oscars down to 42. (So far, though, the only instance where he ''won'' against himself is 1977, for a [[Main/DuelingMovies certain pair of sci-fi films]] by [[Film/ANewHope Lucas]] and [[Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind Spielberg]].) In a way, it's a [[Main/ZigZagged Zig-Zagging]] [[Main/SubvertedTrope Subversion]] of a [[Main/ZigZagged Zig-Zag]].[[/note]]
