Once again, “Through The Shattered Lens” has a terrific post about Oscar! Enjoy!
Ah, the 60s. Both the studio system and the production code collapsed as Hollywood struggled to remain relevant during a time of great social upheaval. The Academy alternated between nominating films that took chances and nominating films that cost a lot of money. It led to some odd best picture lineups and some notable snubs! […]
As for the 60’s, there is a book that tells the dramatic story of the 1967 Academy Awards – see more here:

I would have nominated ‘In Cold Blood’, and ‘2001’. But I do agree with some of the snubs. I have always thought that ‘Psycho’ is tremendously overrated, it’s almost like a cult of Hitchcock, that you cannot say anything bad about him. (I feel the same about ‘The Birds’, a terrible performance from a wooden Rod Taylor.)
Best wishes, Pete.

Snub is an understatement. Wow, what a list!
