PAGE TWO BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY. FEBRUARY, 14, 1»M Split in Big Studio Votes Makes Crosby, Garland Oscar Favorites By JAMES BACON HOLLYWOOD (AP) — An all-important factor — a split in the big studio vote — today made Oscar favorites of Bing Crosby, Judy Garland and the picture "The Country Girl." The nominations were witnessed Saturday night throughout the nation over NBC-TV, which will telecast the Academy Award finals March 30. Prior to the nominations, Crosby the tipsy, has-been actor of "Th Country Girl," and Marlon Bran do, the punchy pug of "On the Wa terfront," were rated neck-and neck favorites. But the nominations presente_ Brando solid opposition", from within his own studio. Humphrey Bogart, Capt. Queeg of "The Caint Mutiny," also was nominated. Both "Waterfront" and "Caine" are Co lumbia pictures. Many Follow Line Although academy voters try tc forget old school loyalties in the selections, it is only human that many of them vote according to their studio's product. That gives Crosby a slight edge in the top actor classification be cause he is Paramount's only en try. Apparently the studio is behind him to a man, which woulc explain the surprise absence o; William Holden from the nominees. Holden costarred with Crosby in "Country Girl." The other top actor nominees are James Mason ("A Star Is Born"; and Dan O'Herlihy ("The Adven tures of Robinson Crusoe"). A split studio vote, which may help Sing, could also work against Grace Kelly for the same picture. Audrey Hepburn, nominated for "Sabrina," is also a Paramount entry. Miss Kelly and Miss Garland also have been neck-and-rieck favorites. Other potent contenders are Jane Wyman ("The Magnificent Obsession") and Dorothy Dandridge ("Carmen J o n e s"). Miss Dandridge is the first Negro ever nominated for the top feminine Oscar. May Split Vote "The Caine Mutiny" and "On the Waterfront" may split the Columbia vote for the best picture award. And again "Country Girl" is the only Paramount entry. The other two nominees are i'Three Coins in a Fountain" and "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.'' Columbia probably will kill itself off in the supporting acting group with four of the five nominees. "Waterfront" has three of them — Rod Stelger, Lee J. Cobb and Karl Maiden. Tom Tully, first skipper of the USS Caine, is another Columbia entry. This leaves clear sailing for Edmond O'Brien, a procuring press agent of "The Barefoot Contessa."
