*NOTE: THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM premiered on December 15, 1944. However, the movie was not issued for general release in the United States until 1945.  Because a film's qualification for the Academy Awards depends on the year in which it is commercially released in Los Angeles County, California, THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM's Academy Award nominations were earned at the 1946 ceremony honoring the films of 1945.

**NOTE: HOW THE WEST WAS WON premiered in 1962. However, the movie was not issued for general release in the United States until 1963.  Because a film's qualification for the Academy Awards depends on the year in which it is commercially released in Los Angeles County, California, HOW THE WEST WAS WON's Academy Award nominations were earned at the 1964 ceremony honoring the films of 1963.
