Elizabeth Taylor Wins Her Second Oscar (1967)

The 39th Academy Awards, hosted by Bob Hope and honoring the best in film for 1966, was held on April 10, 1967 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, California. “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” was nominated for thirteen Academy Awards. The film’s 13 nominations constitute the first and only time of a film being nominated in every category for which it was eligible. It is also the first time a film received an acting nomination for every credited cast member. The film won five awards, including a second Academy Award for Best Actress for Elizabeth Taylor and the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for Sandy Dennis. However, the film lost to “A Man for All Seasons” for the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay awards, and both Richard Burton and George Segal failed to win in their categories.
