Oscar Context:

In 1937, the winner of the Best Actress Oscar was Luise Rainer for “The Good Earth,” a weak performance that must have won due to Louis B. Mayer's campaigning for the Viennese born actress. Another possibility is that the two frontrunners, Stanwyck and Garbo (for the fabulous “Camille”) split the votes

Vet Alice Brady won the Supporting Actress Oscar for the adventure, “In Old Chicago.”
