Oscar Context

In 1947, the two frontrunners in the Bets Picture category were: Kazan's anti-Semitism drama “Gentleman's Agreement” (which won) and Edward Dmytryk's “Crossfire,” which lost in each of its five nominated categories. The other contenders were David Lean's “Great Expectations” and “The Bishop's Wife.”
