Martin Scorsese caught up to Three 6 Mafia's Oscar total, finally winning for this tale — based on the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs — of corrupt cops in Boston. Scorsese aficionados would argue this was his fourth- or fifth-best film, but justice finally was done by the Academy. The 2006 outing, featuring a stunning cast that includes Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio, also won three other Oscars.
