  • 1953 Roman Holiday - Dalton Trumbo (Note: The screen credit and award was originally credited to Ian McLellan Hunter, who was a front for Trumbo. On December 15, 1992, the Board of Governors voted to retrospectively attribute the award to Trumbo. Hunter's name was removed. Although Trumbo had died some years earlier, he had been alive in 1954 and this is not considered a posthumous award)
    • Above and Beyond - Beirne Lay
    • The Captain's Paradise - Alec Coppel
    • Hondo - Louis L'Amour (Note: Originally announced on February 15, 1954 as a nominee in this category. On February 17, 1954, letters from the producer and nominee questioned its inclusion in the category, as it was based on the short story, "The Gift of Cochise", by the nominee, Mr. L'Amour, 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 The nomination was withdrawn, and only four nominees were included on the final ballot. The Academy thanked Mr. L'Amour and despite this incident, offered him a membership in the Academy.)
    • Little Fugitive - Ray Ashley, Morris Engel, Ruth Orkin
  • 1954 Broken Lance - Philip Yordan
    • Bread, Love and Dreams - Ettore Margadonna

    • Strategic Air Command - Beirne Lay
  • 1956 The Brave One - Robert Rich (aka Dalton Trumbo) (Note: The name of the writer credited with authorship, Robert Rich, turned out to be an alias for Mr. Trumbo, who was being blacklisted at that time. On May 2, 1975, then-Academy president Walter Mirisch presented the Award to Dalton Trumbo.)
    • The Eddy Duchin Story - Leo Katcher
    • High Society - Edward Burnds, Elwood Ullman (Note: The authors of this Bowery Boys film respectfully withdrew their own names and the nomination. They were aware that voters had probably mistaken their film with the 1956 MGM musical of the same name starring Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly and Frank Sinatra which was based on The Philadelphia Story. This nomination was not included on the final ballot.)
    • The Proud and the Beautiful - Jean-Paul Sartre
    • Umberto D - Cesare Zavattini
