Oscar Context


In 1947, the two frontrunners in the Bets Picture category were: Kazan's anti-Semitism drama “Gentleman's Agreement” (which won) and Edward Dmytryk's “Crossfire,” which lost in each of its five nominated categories.  The other contenders were David Lean's “Great Expectations” and “Miracle on 34th Street.”  Kazan won Best Director, the editing Oscar went to Francis Lyon and Robert Parrish for the boxing drama, “Body and Soul,” and the Scoring Oscar was given to Miklos Rozsa for “A Double Life.”
