Oscars 1947: Winners and Nominees of the 19th Academy Awards

Public list by WPS with 55 movies or TV shows/series

These movies have won or been nominated for the Oscars 1947 on 03/13/1947.

The 19th Academy Awards took place on March 13, 1947, and continued a trend through the late 1940s of the Oscar voters honoring films about contemporary social issues. The Best Years of Our Lives concerns the lives of three returning veterans from three branches of military service as they adjust to life on the home front after World War II. The Academy awarded Harold Russell—a World War II veteran who had lost both hands in the war and who, despite not being an actor, portrayed Homer Parrish in The Best Years of Our Lives—an Honorary Academy Award for "bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans", believing he would not win the Best Supporting Actor award for which he was nominated. As it happened, he did win the competitive award, making him the only person to receive two Oscars for the same performance. This was the first time since the 2nd Academy Awards that every category had at most 5 nominations. ()

Grant stars for the first time in color in this fanciful biopic. Alexis Smith plays Linda, whose serendipitous meetings with Cole lead to a meeting at the alter. More than 20 Porter songs grace this tail of triumph and tragedy, with Grand lending is amiable voice to "You're the Top", "Night and Day" and more.
