"Strangers on a Train" (1951)
Best Cinematography, Black-and-White
I think most would agree that Farley Granger and particularly Robert Walker were unsung elements of "Strangers on a Train," a film full of creative and striking visuals. And indeed, those visuals were recognized in the form of a Best Cinematography nomination amongst the black-and-white set in 1951. It would lose to "A Place in the Sun" there, while "An American in Paris" was the big overall Oscar winner that year. (The film did, however, notch the first of Hitchcock's eight DGA nominations, which is worth noting. He would go on to receive double nominations from the guild in 1954 and 1956).
