Best Picture winner Tom Jones became the only film in history to garner three Best Supporting Actress nominations; it also tied the Oscar record of five unsuccessful acting nominations, set by Peyton Place at the 30th Academy Awards.
This year's winner for Best Actress category was unique. Although playing a supporting role and having a relatively small amount on the screen, Patricia Neal won the Best Actress category for her lead (or supporting) role in Hud. The movie also won for Best Supporting Actor for Melvyn Douglas and Best Cinematography – Black and White. It was the second and, to date, last film to win two acting awards without being nominated for Best Picture (the other being The Miracle Worker).
At age 71 Margaret Rutherford set a then record for the oldest winner for Best Supporting Actress. Coincidentally, the year before Patty Duke set a then record for the youngest winner ever. Rutherford was also only the 2nd Oscar winner to be over the age of 70 at the time of her win. The other was Edmund Gwenn.
