Hondo — Louis L'Amour [Nota: Esta no es una nominación oficial. Originally announced on February 15, 1954 as a nominee in this category. On February 17, 1954, letters from the producer and the nominee questioned its inclusion in the (original) motion picture story category, as it was based on the short story, 'The Gift of Cochise,' by the nominee, published in Collier's magazine on July 5, 1952. By waiver, the title of the short story was not included in the film's credits. The nomination was withdrawn, and only four titles were included on the final ballot.]
Little Fugitive — Ray Ashley, Morris Engel, Ruth Orkin
* Roman Holiday — Dalton Trumbo [Nota: The screen credit and award were originally credited to Ian McLellan Hunter, who was a 'front' for Dalton Trumbo. On December 15, 1992, the Academy's Board of Governors voted to change the records and award Mr. Trumbo with the achievement. Ian McLellan Hunter's name was removed from the Motion Picture Story category. The Oscar was posthumously presented to Trumbo's widow on May 10, 1993.]
