1962 Academy Awards: Prize Summary

Well, there we have it. 1962 has been, has gone, has come back, been fixed, and been sent on its way again. Here are my, likely error-filled-but-can’t-be-arsed-going-back-to fix- winners from this year. Quite a few changes from the Oscars that you know and hate – Lawrence Of Arabia picks up nine nominations from me, but only wins one, while Dr No tops both lists with an astonishing 13 nominations and 5 wins.  Go watch it again – it’s great! As an added incentive for reading, here is a nice unrelated picture of –
