Oscar Context

Gone with the Wind, which swept most of the Oscars, vied for the top award with nine other films: Dark Victory, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Love Affair, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Ninotchka, Of Mice and Men, Stagecoach, The Wizard of Oz, and Wuthering Heights.

The winner of the Supporting Actor Oscar was Thomas Mitchell for the Western “Stagecoach” (he also played that year Scarlett O'Hara's father in “Gone with the Wind”).

Gregg Toland deservedly won the b/w Cinematography for “Wuthering Heights.”
