But the Best Picture winner was “The Greatest Show on Earth,” winning two of its five nods. The fifth nominee was the historical drama “Ivanhoe,” which received three but lost in each of its categories.

The Directing Oscar went to John Ford for “The Quiet Man,” and the Acting Oscars to Gary Cooper for “High Noon” and Gloria Grahame for “The Bad and the Beautiful.”
