What should have won: All About Eve
What actually won: Miss Julie / Miracle In Milan
There was a tie in 1951 between Swedish film Froken Julie (Miss Julie) and Miracle In Milan. They're both exceptionally fine films - but also in the competition was the superb All About Eve, which had to make do with the Jury Prize and Best Actress for Bette Davis. With A Place In The Sun, Powell and Pressburger's The Tales of Hoffman and Luis Luis Buñuel's Los Olvidados also in competition, there's no doubt that it was a stellar year - but Mankiewicz's film should still have won.
