On a side note, the 2nd Academy Awards is unique in being the only occasion where there were no official nominees. Subsequent research by the Academy has resulted in a list of unofficial or de facto nominees, based on records of which films were evaluated by the judges. Although these nominees aren't official, I treat them as such as there is a set list of entries that were considered.
