    Best Picture: The Graduate

    Best Director: Mike Nichols, The Graduate

    Best Actor: Warren Beatty, Bonnie and Clyde

    Best Actress: Anne Bancroft, The Graduate

    Best Supporting Actor: George Kennedy, Cool Hand Luke

    I’d choose to abstain from the remaining categories, as I hadn’t seen the foreign/documentary films/animated shorts, and don’t know much about sound effects, mixing, editing, etc.

    As much as I enjoyed Hepburn in Wait Until Dark, I wish she had been nominated for Two for the Road instead.

    If Bette Davis had won the oscar for Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, would Bancroft have won this year?

    I bet Hepburn would’ve still won, probably leaving Bancroft Oscar-less during her career. Thirty-four years since her Morning Glory victory, there was a definite hunger to give Hepburn #2.
