ⓘ 39th Academy Awards

The 39th Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 1966, were held on April 10, 1967, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, California. They were hosted by Bob Hope.

Only two of the Best Picture nominees were nominated for Best Director: A Man for All Seasons and Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Both were adaptations of stage dramas.

2. Trivia

  • This was the only time in the history of the Academy Awards that all Best Actress nominees were born outside of the United States.
  • The Academy Awards broadcast was almost canceled because of a strike involving the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists AFTRA, the theatrical performers union governing live telecasts. However, the dispute was settled three hours before the ceremony was scheduled to begin. Bob Hopes opening monologue makes many references to this, and he claims that as late as 30 minutes before broadcast it was uncertain whether the telecast would go on.
  • Californias governor, Ronald Reagan, was among the guests in the audience. He was a longtime Academy member and supporter.
  • Mitzi Gaynors performance of the song "Georgy Girl" is often cited as being one of the most heralded performances on an Oscar broadcast.
  • Patricia Neal, making her first Hollywood appearance since a near-fatal stroke of two years before, received a standing ovation from the audience.
  • Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf s 13 nominations constitute the first and, as of 2012, only instance of a film being nominated in every category for which it was eligible. It is also the first instance of a film receiving an acting nomination for every credited cast member.
  • Vanessa Redgrave and Lynn Redgrave were both nominated for Best Actress. This was the first time in 25 years that two sisters were nominated in that category Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine were nominated for Best Actress in 1941.
