Oscar Context
 
The Best Actor contest in 1950 included Louis Calhern in "The Magnificent Yankee," William Holden in "Sunset Boulevard," James Stewart in "Harvey," and Spencer Tracy in "Father of the Bride."
 
This was the second nomination for Ferrer, who had previously received a nod in the supporting actor category for "Joan of Arc," in 1948, starring Ingrid Bergman.
 
The play has been adapted into the big screen numerous times, but the best version is the 1990 French film, for which Gerard Depardieu received a Best Actor Oscar nomination.
