Oscar Context

In 1943, no less than ten films competed for the Best Picture Oscar: “Casablanca,” which won, “For Whom the Bell Tolls,” “Heaven Can Wait,” “The Human Comedy,” “In Which We Serve,” “Madame Curie,” “The More the Merrier,” “The Ox-Bow Incident,” “The Song of Bernadette,” and “Watch on the Rhine.”

Of the ten nominees, William A. Wellman's “Ox-Bow Incident” was the only film to receive just one nod, for Best Picture.
