1966 Academy Awards: An Introduction

39th_Academy_Awards

Bob Hope hosted the 39th Academy Awards in Santa Monica, which saw 2 Stage Adaptations tugging for the votes, with Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf getting 13 nominations (the only time a films has been nominated for every category it was eligible for) and A Man For All Seasons winning 6 awards.

Special Awards went to Director Robert Wise, Producer Frank Freeman, and Stuntman Yakima Canutt, whilst the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Charlton Heston, Sidney Poitier, and Julie Christie presented awards. Patricia Neal took to the stage for the first time in two years to a standing ovation, following a near fatal stroke, while Dionne Warwick and Roger Williams amongst others, provided music for the night.

Stay tuned as I make my way through most of the categories and select my winners from the official nominations, and pick my own nominees too.
