Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
... and yet I feel compelled to add a commentary. The reason for this is an interview with John Frankenheimer I saw on youtube.com. He's a great storyteller and explains at length how in this episode EVERYTHING went wrong. The actors were terribly miscast, they forgot their lines (this was live TV, I believe) and had to be "pinned to the wall" by the TV cameras lest they would walk off the set and out of the studio, the fog machine came on too late and then overproduced, enshrouding the different sets. John Frankenheimer says, if I understood correctly, that he had to take the blame for the disaster and was fired. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9HUMhdBNG4 - it's worth your time!
