Lightbulb Academy Awards

The 27th Academy Awards honored the best films produced in 1954.. The Best Picture winner, On the Waterfront, was produced by Sam Spiegel and directed by Elia Kazan.. It had twelve nominations and 8 wins, matching two other films, Gone with the Wind (1939) and From Here to Eternity (1953), even though those two each had 13 nominations..

Best Cinematography, Colour...

Three Coins in the Fountain – Milton Krasner...
The Egyptian –Leon Shamroy
Rear Window – Robert Burks
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers – George Folsey
The Silver Chalice – William V. Skall... will be restored, but for years and for hundreds of years,it will lie in darkness; where, I know not.. When it is brought out into the light again there will be great cities, and mighty bridges and towers higher than the tower of Babel.. It will be a world of evil and long bitter wars.. In such a world as that the little cup will look very lonely.. But it may be in that age when man holds lightning in his hands, and rides the sky as Simon the Magician strove to do it will be needed more than it is needed now...
