The winners of the Song Oscar were Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields for their popular tune “The Way You Look Tonight,” from the Astaire-Rogers musical “Swing Time.” The recipient of the Dance Direction Oscar was Seymour Felix for staging “A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody” from the musical biopic “The Great Ziegfeld,” which also won Best Picture.
