Actual Nominations: Nuremberg and The Hustler strike again with Montgomery Clift getting a nod for the former and Jackie Gleason and George C Scott for the latter. Peter Falk gets his second nomination in 2 years for Pocketful Of Miracles, whilst George Chakiris picked up the win for West Side Story and hasn’t done a tap since. My pick goes to Jackie as he never got any other nominations.
My Winner: Jackie Gleason
My Nominations: Jackie Gleason. Anthony Quinn. David Niven. Montgomery Clift. Russ Tamblyn.
I’ve added a couple of stalwarts from The Guns Of Navarone to my list – there isn’t much to pick between the rugged Quinn and the explosive (‘s expert) Niven. Throw in Russ Tamblyn as the leader of The Jets, and we have a good mix of stars.
My Winner: Jackie Gleason.
