Oscar Context

Danilo Dontai, who also oversaw the sets, was a multiple Oscar nominee, including nods for several Fellini and other films, such as “Mandragola” (1966) and “The Gospel According to St. Matthew (1966). 

And so was Fellini, as both director and writer, though he never won a legit, competitive Oscar.  In 1993, just months before his death, Fellini received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy.

The winner of the Adapted Screenplay Oscar was William Goldman for “All the President’s Man,” which was also nominated for Best Picture.
