Academy Award nomination certificate for Jerome Kern's 1946 song "All Through the Day." He was nominated posthumously at the 19th Academy Awards ceremony for this song from his score of the musical comedy "Centennial Summer," his last before his death. Kern enjoyed a wildly successful career that evolved from composer of Broadway musicals and innovator in the genre, to scorer of Hollywood films, earning 2 Oscars and a total of 8 nominations. Kern's music is known for its very specific relevance to movie plots, to the extent that he resisted his songs being played out of context. Jerome Kern received top billing in "Centennial Summer", and Oscar Hammerstein II provided the lyrics. The film was based on a novel by Albert E. Idell, about a pair of sisters in Philadelphia who fall in love with the same man. Kern is known for such major hits as "Show Boat," "Ol' Man River," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "The Way You Look Tonight" and nearly 700 more. Nomination certificate is signed by Jean Hersholt as President of the Academy, and also by the Secretary. The Academy's official gold seal with red ribbon appears at lower left. Measures 10" x 11.75". In very good condition.
