Best Art Direction: 1968

Official Nominations: Oliver! War And Peace. The Shoes Of The Fisherman. Star! 2001: A Space Odyssey.

A minor surprise with the strange The Shoes Of The Fisherman getting a nomination over some of the bigger, richer films of the year, but otherwise present and accounted for with Oliver!, Star! and War And Peace (!) getting expected nods. It’s difficult to chose against Oliver! in this category, but for me Anthony Masters, Harry Lange, and Ernie Archer deserve it for incredible work in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

My Winner: 2001: A Space Odyssey

My Nominations: Oliver! 2001. Once Upon A Time In The West. The Producers. The Thomas Crown Affair. Rosemary’s Baby.

A few obvious additions in my personal list of nominations, each an equally vibrant film in its own right. My choice of winner remains the same though.

My Winner: 2001: A Space Odyssey
