"Big Five" films[edit]

It might be worth mentioning that three out of the five Best Picture nominees were also Big Five nominees: Bonnie and Clyde, The Graduate, and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. Big Five = Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and screenplay. Kvsh5 (talk) 19:55, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Table format[edit]

I updated this to table format today, something I am doing for all Oscar pages 1965 - 1976. See Talk:38th Academy Awards for more details. Note: This one needs a little tidy up still with italics etc, which I will try and do today or tomorrow. Nora nettlerash (talk) 11:31, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Italics and bolds now as they should be. Nora nettlerash (talk) 11:01, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

This article's source mistakenly repeats the 1967 winners/nominees for 1968. IOW, this article is entirely incorrect. Discovered while working Feb 24 NYT crossword. stephenrumson —Preceding undated comment added 18:42, 24 February 2012 (UTC).
