At the first Academy Awards in 1929 Gerald C. Duffy was nominated for the Oscar, which was only awarded that year, in the category of "Best Title Writing" ("Best Subtitles"). Since Duffy had died on June 25, 1928, he was the first to be posthumously nominated for an Oscar. However, the award went to Joseph Farnham , who received the Oscar for his overall performance.
