This is regarding the award show of March 1946 honoring films made in 1945.

Why is Ann Revere nominated/wins for national velvet? The movie is invariably listed as a 1944 release. At least one other movie with a release date of 1944 also had nominations: Keys of the Kingdom. what is going on here? Were the rules different? Something about wartime?

Thank you. I am dying to know what is going on here.

Premiere was Dec 1944, but theatrical release was Jan 1945, which was presumably the qualifying showing. I think the qualifying showings are a run of a week in a set number of theatres/screens or possibly just one. But the one-off premiere wouldn't count - so it was the proper release in 1945 that did.

Also, IMDB is seriously screwed up on dates at times - don't take them as gospel
