Oscar Context

In 1948, “Hamlet” won the Best Picture over competition with the ballet-drama “The Red Shoes,” which broke box-office records in the U.S.; two melodramas, “Johnny Belinda” with Jane Wyman and “The Snake Pit” with Olivia De Havilland, and John Huston's brilliant crime drama, “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,” with an all-star cast, headed by Humphrey Bogart and John Huston's father, Walter Huston.

The most nominated picture was “Johnny Belinda,” receiving 12 nominations, but winning only one Oscar, Best Actress for Jane Wyman as the deaf-mute girl Belinda McDonald.
