It's almost laughable that there were only two nominees in each of the categories this year.
Anna and the King of Siam was visually impressive, The Green Years not so much, though both were among the year's best from Hollywood, but where were Open City, Children of Paradise, Brief Encounter, Blithe Spirit, Dead of Night, The Best Years of Our Lives, It's a Wonderful Life, Notorious, My Darling Clementine, The Big Sleep, Kitty, Gilda, The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Killers and Dragonwyck, all of which were eligible.
The Yearling, much of which was filmed five years earlier when World War II intervened and the project was scrapped when it was to have starred Spencer Tracy and Anne Revere, was always going to win this one with The Jolson Story having no chance against it. Where, though, were Henry V, Duel in the Sun, The Harvey Girls, Till the Clouds Roll By, Caesar and Cleopatra, Blue Skies and the color remake of The Virginian?
Voted for the Oscar winners but if write-ins were allowed, I'd have voted for Open City and Henry V.
1927/28 through 1997
