Oscar Context

In 1951, Minnelli's musical “An American in Paris” was the surprise Oscar winner in a tough competition that included the War movie, “Decision Before Dawn,” two impressively acted adult-themed dramas, “A Place in the Sun” and “A Streetcar Named Desire,” and the popular historical epic, “Quo Vadis”

The winner of the Editing Oscar was William Hornbeck for “A Place in the Sun.”
