Oscar Context
 
The winner of the Original Screenplay was, rather absurdly, Frenchman Albert Lamorisse for his well-received short (but almost wordless) “The Red Balloon.”
 
Anthony Quinn won his second Supporting Actor Oscar for Minnelli’s biopic of Van Gogh, “Lust for Life.”
 
Despite multiple nominations, Mickey Rooney never won a legit, competitive Oscar.
