Oscar ~ Best Supporting Actor 1963

Patty Duke presented the Best Supporting Actor award .The Best Supporting Actor nominees for 1963 were: Nick Adams for Twilight of Honor, Bobby Darin for Captain Newman, M.D., Hugh Griffith for Tom Jones, John Huston for The Cardinal, and Melvyn Douglas for Hud.
I love watching the Oscar clips from the classic Oscars, scouring the audience for candid clips of familiar faces. Nick Adams in the audience with Peter Ustinov in the seat behind him and Dame Edith Evans seated in front of him. Bobby Darin and wife Sandra Dee with Anjanette Comer seated in front. John Huston seated with Stella Stevens (I guess that answers a question for me) with Leslie Caron behind to the left and David Niven seated in front of them.
Melvyn Douglas received the Best Supporting Actor Award for his performance in Hud which was accepted for him by Brandon de Wilde his co-star from the movie. I knew there was a time in the sixties where nominees were no shows this show was one of them but Brandon explained that Melvyn wasn’t there because he was currently in Spain I’m thinking the rest of the no shows were currently in Briton.
