1960 Academy Awards Prize Summary

Now that my choices for 1960 are over, I’m giving a handy, useless, summary of my thoughts. Once I have completed my re-imagnining of a particular year I will list my overall choices of winners from the actual nominations, as well as the numbers from my own nominations and winners. For any stats geeks amongst out there, you may find something of interest here. For everyone else, please accept my apologies. Note- I am not including a nomination per film when an actor or director is nominated for that film- so if Audrey Hepburn was nominated as Best Actress for Breakfast At Tiffany’s it would only be 1 nomination for Hepburn, not 1 for her and 1 for the film. Additionally, at the bottom I’ve added a recommended viewing list for anyone with similar tastes to me.
