Ed Wood (1994)

Martin Landau as "Bela Lugosi"

Because of his eccentric habits and bafflingly strange films, director Ed Wood (Johnny Depp) is a Hollywood outcast. Nevertheless, with the help of the formerly famous Bela Lugosi and a devoted cast and crew of show-business misfits who believe in Ed's off-kilter vision, the filmmaker is able to bring his oversize dreams to cinematic life. Despite a lack of critical or commercial success, Ed and his friends manage to create an oddly endearing series of extremely low-budget films.

British Academy of Film & Television Arts (1995) Nominated Actor in a Supporting Role
Academy Award (1994) Won Best Supporting Actor
Golden Globe (1994) Won Best Performance By an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture
Screen Actors Guild Awards (1994) Won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
