Oscar Context

Gone with the Wind, which swept most of the Oscars in 1939, 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.

Love Affair was one of the year's biggest losers, failing to win one award out of six nominations.
