'The Wizard of Oz' is one of the all instance Hollywood classics, and you would anticipate it to have been showered beside Oscar Awards.
We can all forthwith envision Judy Garland melodic 'Over The Rainbow', the red witty shoes, the Cowardly Lion, and the Wicked Witch of The West.
Unfortunately it came out in a vintage twelvemonth for classic films, 1939, and vanished out.
The primary victor that year was Gone With The Wind, which common the director, Victor Fleming.
Gone With The Wind was appointive for 13 awards, and won 8, a register which would stomach until 1957.
In fact, contempt all the awards picked up by Gone With The Wind, that picture didn't even win Best Actor!
Clark Gable was pipped to that gong by Robert Donat for 'Goodbye, Mr.Chips', a tell-tale evidence if ever nearly how contending it was that time period.
I'm not sure at hand was an unambiguous Best Actor nominee from The Wizard of Oz, and I meditate that control true for a lot of categories - The Wizard of Oz was more of an musical group particle.Post ads:

In the end it wrong up with 2 Oscars, for best original score, and top-grade nursery rhyme for 'Over The Rainbow.'
That was a poem which was extraordinarily virtually cut from the motion-picture show - that would have understood the Oscar number descending to one!
Funnily adequate I have ne'er seen 'Goodbye, Mr. Chips.'
I'm guesswork I should put that right, considering how so much I esteem 'Gone With The Wind' and 'The Wizard of Oz'.
Here in the UK it was a institution when I was budding up that 'The Wizard of Oz' was e'er shown complete the Christmas break fundamental measure.
Lately that seems to have not been the case, and 'Gone With The Wind' seems to be trotted out even smaller quantity.
I say with it self so long, they have to discovery a suitable billet in the schedules.
