    37th Academy Awards

    37th Academy Awards

    The 37th Academy Awards honored film achievements of 1964. For the first time, an award was presented in the field of makeup. All four acting awards went to non-American actors, something not repeated until the 80th Academy Awards were awarded for 2007. The Best Picture winner of 1964, director George Cukor's My Fair Lady, was about the transformative training of a rough-speaking flower girl into a lady. The musical had run for many years on the stage (in both NYC and London). Audrey Hepburn, the female lead of the film, was controversially not nominated for Best Actress. The unpopularity of her replacement of Julie Andrews - the stage actress from the original play (and ironically the Best Actress winner of the year) - as well as the revelation that her singing performance was dubbed by Marni Nixon were seen as the main reasons for the snub. The producer of the ceremony was MGM film producer Joe Pasternak. Bob Hope served as master of ceremonies. The awards show was star-studded with many top celebrities participating, including an appearance by Judy Garland, who sang a medley of Cole Porter songs in tribute to the composer who died in October, 1964. This year marked the only time

    19th Academy Awards

    The 19th Academy Awards continued a trend through the late-1940s of the Oscar voters honoring films about contemporary social issues.

This was the first time since the 2nd Academy Awards that every category had at most 5 nominations. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    2012 MTV Video Music Awards

    The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Kevin Hart, took place on Thursday, September 6, 2012, honoring the best music videos from the previous year. The awards were broadcast from the Staples Center arena at L.A. Live in Downtown Los Angeles. Nominations were announced on July 31, 2012. Rihanna and Drake received five nominations, while Katy Perry and Beyoncé received four. One Direction were the biggest winners of the night winning their three nominations, including Best New Artist, and Rihanna went on to win Video of the Year. Both M.I.A. and Chris Brown won two awards each. The awards ceremony was the least-watched VMA show since 2007. The major thing that contributed to it was moving the broadcast date to Thursday instead of Sunday, the day MTV been using since 2004 with the exception in 2006. MTV also moved up the telecast to 8pm instead of 9pm, to avoid competing with President Barack Obama's speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention and this was early for MTV's targeted young audience. Nominees were announced on July 31, 2012. Rihanna (featuring Calvin Harris) — "We Found Love" Chris Brown — "Turn Up the Music" Nicki Minaj — "Starships" One Direction — "What

    Paris

    Paris

    Paris, Texas is a city located 98 miles (158 km) northeast of the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex in Lamar County, Texas, in the United States. It is situated in Northeast Texas at the western edge of the Piney Woods. Physiographically, these regions are part of the West Gulf Coastal Plain. In 1900, 9,358 people lived in Paris; in 1910, 11,269; in 1920, 15,040; and in 1940, 18,678. As of the 2010 census, the population of the city was 25,171. It is the county seat of Lamar County and serves as a business and employment center for the county. The film Paris, Texas by Wim Wenders was named after the city, but was not set there. Local residents like the humorous slogan "Second Largest Paris in the World." Following a tradition of American cities named "Paris", a 65-foot (20 m) replica of the Eiffel Tower was constructed in 1993. In 1998, presumably as a response to the 1993 construction of a 70-foot (21 m) tower in Paris, Tennessee, the city placed a giant red cowboy hat atop the tower. The current tower is at least the second Eiffel Tower replica built in Paris; the first was constructed of wood and later destroyed by a tornado. It is governed by a city council as specified in the city's

    14th Academy Awards

    14th Academy Awards

    The 14th Academy Awards honored American film achievements in 1941 and was held in the Biltmore Bowl at the Biltmore Hotel. The ceremony is now considered notable, in retrospect, as the year in which Citizen Kane failed to win Best Picture. Best Picture of the year was awarded to How Green Was My Valley, the story of Welsh coalminers in changing times. In addition, John Ford won his third Academy Award for Best Director, also for How Green Was My Valley. Most public attention was focused on the Best Actress race between sibling rivals Joan Fontaine in Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion and Olivia de Havilland for Hold Back the Dawn. Fontaine’s victory was the only time an actor won for a performance in an Alfred Hitchcock film. This was also the first year in which documentaries were included. The first Oscar for a documentary was awarded to Churchill's Island. The Little Foxes established a new high of nine nominations without winning a single Oscar. Its mark was matched by Peyton Place in 1957, and exceeded by The Turning Point and The Color Purple, both of which received 11 nominations without a win. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    78th Academy Awards

    The 78th Academy Awards honored the best films of 2005 and were held on March 5, 2006, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California. They were hosted by The Daily Show host Jon Stewart, with Tom Kane making his first appearance as the show's announcer. The ceremony was pushed back from its newly established February date because of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. The nominees were announced on January 31 at 5:38 a.m. PST (13:38 UTC) by Academy president Sid Ganis and actress Mira Sorvino, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in the Academy's Beverly Hills headquarters. Ang Lee's drama Brokeback Mountain had the most nominations of the year's films, receiving eight. Paul Haggis' Crash, George Clooney's Good Night, and Good Luck, and Rob Marshall's Memoirs of a Geisha each received six nominations. The ceremony was remembered by many insiders and film critics for its nominations of independently financed, low budget films. In addition, the subject matter of the nominated films focused on controversial political and social themes, such as racial relations and racism (Crash), homosexuality (Brokeback Mountain, Capote), transsexuality (Transamerica), McCarthyism (Good Night, and

    30th Academy Awards

    30th Academy Awards

    1957's best films were honored at the 30th Academy Awards, held on 26 March 1958. The Oscar for Writing Based on Material From Another Medium was awarded to Pierre Boulle for The Bridge on the River Kwai, despite the fact that he did not know English. The actual writers, Carl Foreman and Michael Wilson were blacklisted at the time and did not receive screen credit for their work. Foreman and Wilson have since been acknowledged by the Academy for their contributions. Joanne Woodward's win for Best Actress for her triple role as Eve White, Eve Black and Jane in The Three Faces of Eve marked the film as the last film to win Best Actress without being nominated for other awards. This was broken 31 years later when Jodie Foster won Best Actress for her role in The Accused, the film's only nomination. While the film Peyton Place tied for the record for the most nominations without a single win (9) with The Little Foxes. It would not be broken until 1977 when The Turning Point got 11 nominations without a win, which has not been broken since, though The Color Purple subsequently tied the record. It was the first time the ceremonies were broadcast live. Winners are listed first and

    The 45th Academy Awards were presented March 27, 1973 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Charlton Heston, and Rock Hudson. The ceremony was marked by Marlon Brando's boycott of the Oscars and his sending of Sacheen Littlefeather to explain why he would not show up to collect his Best Actor award for The Godfather, and by Charlie Chaplin's first competitive Oscar win for Best Original Score for his 20-year-old film Limelight, which was eligible due to a technicality. Chaplin had received an honorary Oscar the previous year. Cabaret, Bob Fosse's revival of the Broadway stage musical, set a record for the most Oscars won without winning Best Picture. Although it is now recognized as one of the most acclaimed and beloved films of all time, The Godfather only received three Academy Awards. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    77th Academy Awards

    The 77th Academy Awards honored the best films of 2004 and were held on February 27, 2005, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, California. They were hosted by comedian Chris Rock. The nominees were announced on January 25, 2005. Martin Scorsese's biopic of the eccentric Howard Hughes, The Aviator, led the pack with eleven nominations including Best Actor, Best Director, and Best Picture. Marc Forster's Finding Neverland and Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby each had seven nominations. Ray and Sideways rounded out the nominees for Best Picture. The 77th Academy Awards was the first Oscar telecast since the 73rd Academy Awards to receive a TV rating of TV-14. This is most likely due to many "edgy" comments made by Chris Rock during the ceremony. Since this, every future telecast to date would receive a TV-14 rating. Hilary Swank won her second Academy Award for Best Actress; among her fellow nominees was Annette Bening, who had also been nominated when Swank won her first award in 1999. At age 74 Clint Eastwood became the oldest director to win the Oscar. This was also the second straight year that he directed two Academy Award-winning performances. With The Aviator winning 5

The show was landmark in that it featured a female African American host for the first time, Whoopi Goldberg, and represented a direct contrast in edgy style from Billy Crystal who had hosted the show the previous four years. Schindler's List dominated the evening winning seven Oscars out of its 12 nominations, including Best Picture. Another big winner was The Piano, which received eight nominations and won three awards. Anna Paquin's win, at age 11, made her the second youngest competitive winner in Oscar history, the youngest being Tatum O'Neal, who won the award at age 10. Jane Campion became only the second woman in history to be nominated for Best Director. Although she did not win, she received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Kathryn Bigelow later became the first female to win the Best Director prize in 2010.

The ceremony was held in The Venetian Macao, Macau from June 11 to June 13, 2009.

The ceremony was hosted by Boman Irani, Ritesh Deshmukh and Lara Dutta. IIFA completed 10 years of existence in 2009, giving awards to numerous prominent film personalities. In honour of this landmark, five special IIFA Awards were awarded that year, and these awards were collectively called as the IIFA Golden Decade Honors (also as the Artists of the Decade Awards). The film Jodhaa Akbar led the nominations tally with 16 nominations. It was followed by Ghajini with 10 nominations each, and Dostana with seven nominations.

They were hosted by Bob Hope; this was the seventh time Hope hosted the Oscars. For the first time in Oscar history, the show lasted longer than two hours. Legendary filmmaker Federico Fellini received his first Best Director nomination for his film La Dolce Vita, though the movie itself failed to garner a nomination for Best Picture. Winners are listed first and highlighted with boldface The most memorable event of the night was when Stan Berman, a New York City cabdriver, awarded Bob Hope a homemade Oscar after he had slipped through security and made his way to the stage. Both Jackie Gleason (in "The Hustler") and Judy Garland (in "Judgment At Nuremberg") were heavily favored to win the awards for best supporting actor and actress. However, they were defeated by George Chakiris and Rita Moreno as part of the "West Side Story" sweep. The musical film wound up winning a total of ten Academy Awards including Best Picture.

    60th Academy Awards

    60th Academy Awards

    The 60th Academy Awards were presented April 11, 1988 at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, California. The ceremony was the first to be held there since the 20th Academy Awards. The 1988 Writers Guild of America strike, which began on March 7, were mentioned several times during the evening: host Chevy Chase claimed his "entire monologue was generously donated by five Teamsters" and Sean Connery referred to the strike in his acceptance speech. Billy Wilder was rewarded The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. The event was otherwise dominated by two films. The Last Emperor won all nine Oscars for which it was nominated, including two for Bernardo Bertolucci, who won for his direction and for co-writing the screenplay, adapted from the title character's autobiography. It did so in spite of having been "snubbed by several Hollywood studios and mishandled by the company (Columbia Pictures) that finally distributed it." Moonstruck, nominated for six Academy Awards, received three, two in acting categories (for Cher and Olympia Dukakis), and another for its original screenplay. Four films with five or more nominations were shut out: Broadcast News, Hope and Glory, Fatal Attraction, and

    28th Genie Awards

    The 28th Genie Awards were held on March 3, 2008 to honour films released in 2007. The ceremony was held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The show was broadcast on E! and Independent Film Channel and hosted by Sandra Oh. The nominations for 2008 faced some controversy when director Jason Reitman issued a statement expressing his disappointment that the hit film Juno, which had a Canadian director, Canadian stars (Ellen Page and Michael Cera) and a Canadian crew, and was filmed in Canada, did not qualify for a nomination. Sara Morton, the head of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television, issued a statement indicating that the film — which was produced by an American film studio — had not been submitted for Genie Award consideration.

    51st Academy Awards

    The 51st Academy Awards were presented April 9, 1979 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Johnny Carson. Notably, the two "front-runners" for Best Picture this year - Coming Home and The Deer Hunter - were anti-war films that reflected the nation's growing resentment over the Vietnam War. John Wayne, who would die of stomach cancer two months later, made his final public appearance to present the Oscar to the producers of The Deer Hunter. This was also the final public appearance of Jack Haley, who died one month after presenting the Best Costume Design award with his co-star from The Wizard of Oz, Ray Bolger. This was the first of several consecutive ceremonies presided over by talk show host Johnny Carson; introducing him on this broadcast, the announcer identified him as "John Carson".

    2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards

    The 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards took place on November 28, 2010, at The Venetian Macao in Macau, China. The ceremony was marred with criticism and was the first Mnet Asian Music Awards to occur outside of South Korea. 2NE1 took home four awards, the most of the night, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. 2PM took home three, and rookie group miss A won Song of the Year for "Bad Girl Good Girl". Additionally, Taeyang, DJ Doc, Gummy, Rain, Hot Potato, Far East Movement, Perfume, iMe, and Chemistry all won awards during the televised broadcast. In total, there were thirty two awards, including awards not given out during broadcast. Winners are in bold text. SM Entertainment, the largest Korean music agency, boycotted the 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards, as they did in 2009. The show was under fire for fairness and employing a "no show, no award" policy where the winner must attend the ceremonies. In addition, Mnet came under criticism because of the date and location of the awards. They were the first Mnet Asian Music Awards to take place outside of South Korea. They also aired on a Sunday, which means performers had to choose between SBS' The Music Trend show or the

    32nd Academy Awards

    The 32nd Academy Awards honored film achievements of 1959 on 4 April 1960. MGM's (producer Sam Zimbalist) and director William Wyler's three and a half-hour long epic drama Ben-Hur (with a spectacular sea battle and eleven minute chariot race choreographed by Yakima Canutt) won 11 Oscars in 1959, breaking the previous year's all-time record of nine (Gigi (1958)). With its record-breaking eleven Oscar wins out of twelve nominations, it was the most honored motion picture in Academy Award history until Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King both equaled the feat in 1997 and 2003, respectively. Ben-Hur was a re-make of MGM's own 1926 silent film of the same name, and it was the most expensive film of its time, budgeted at $15 million. Both films were based on or inspired by General Lew Wallace's novel (first published in 1880) about the rise of Christianity. Ben-Hur was also the 3rd film to win both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, and was the last to do that until 2004 when Mystic River did it. Winners are listed first and highlighted with boldface

    13th Academy Awards

    The 13th Academy Awards honored American film achievements in 1940. This was the first year that sealed envelopes were used to keep secret the names of the winners which led to the famous phrase: "May I have the Envelope, please." The accounting firm of Price Waterhouse was hired to count the ballots, after the fiasco of leaked voting results in 1939 by the Los Angeles Times. For he first time, the award for Best Screenplay was split into two separate categories: Best Original Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay. Independent producer David O. Selznick, who had produced the previous year's big winner Gone with the Wind (1939), also produced the Best Picture winner in 1940, Rebecca - and campaigned heavily for its win. Selznick was the first to produce two consecutive winners of the Best Picture Oscar. Although Rebecca had eleven nominations, it only won for Best Picture and Best Cinematography (Black and White). The film's studio - United Artists - was the last of the original film studios (the others were MGM, Columbia, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Universal, and Paramount) to win the Best Picture Oscar. Rebecca was the first American-made film directed by Alfred Hitchcock,

    2nd Academy Awards

    The 2nd Academy Awards were presented on April 3, 1930, at an awards banquet in the Cocoanut Grove of The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and broadcast live on the radio. The awards were for films released between August 1, 1928, and July 31, 1929. As the ceremony was being held more than eight months after the end of the eligibility period, it was decided that the 3rd Academy Awards would be held in November 1930, so as to bring the awards ceremony closer to the relevant time period. As a result, 1930 was the only year in which two awards ceremonies were held in the same calendar year. The second ceremony included a number of changes over the first. Most importantly, it was the first presentation for which the winners were not announced in advance. Additionally, the number of categories was reduced from twelve to seven. The 2nd Academy Awards is unique in being the only occasion where there were no official nominees. Subsequent research by AMPAS has resulted in a list of unofficial or de facto nominees, based on records of which films were evaluated by the judges. The Divine Lady is the only film to ever win Best Director without a Best Picture nomination, excluding the first

The ceremonies were presided over by Sammy Davis, Jr., Bob Hope, Shirley MacLaine, and Frank Sinatra. This was the last year NBC aired the ceremonies before ABC secured broadcasting rights, which they still hold to this day. Between the two of them, father and son Carmine and Francis Ford Coppola won no less than four awards this one night. The event occurred while a massive thunderstorm raged outside. The success of The Godfather Part II was notable; it received twice as many Oscars as its predecessor (six) and duplicated its feat of three Best Supporting Actor nominations. Prolific and flamboyant film producer Robert Evans received his only Academy Award nomination as the producer of Chinatown. Winners are highlighted in bold.

    67th Academy Awards

    The 67th Academy Awards, honoring the best films of 1994, were held on March 27, 1995 at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, California. They were hosted by comedian and talk show host David Letterman. The ceremony is perhaps best remembered for Letterman's performance as the host. Although some thought of him as different but good, most critics labeled his performance as terrible and vowed for him never to host the Oscars again. This negative criticism arose from Letterman's absurdist brand of comedy, and it would lead to Late Show with David Letterman losing in the ratings to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno by the summer of 1995. Letterman seems to have a sense of humor about it, however, because around Academy Award season he frequently references his lackluster appearance at the Academy awards on his show in a humorous tone. Forrest Gump won Best Picture, as well as an additional five Oscars, including Tom Hanks' second consecutive Academy Award for Best Actor. Hanks became only the second person in Oscar history to accomplish the feat of winning consecutive awards in the Best Actor category, the first being Spencer Tracy.

The ceremony was broadcast on the ABC network and was the first to be broadcast live in color. The two most nominated films were The Sound of Music and Doctor Zhivago, each with ten nominations. Although both films ultimately won five awards, the winner of Best Picture was 20th Century Fox's and Robert Wise's The Sound of Music, adapted from the Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway musical. Both movies are among the most successful films ever and are in the top 10 adjusted films ever made. In the best actress category, Julie Christie (Darling) beat out Julie Andrews, who had won the previous year for Mary Poppins. Had Andrews won again for The Sound Of Music, she would have been the second actress to win the top trophy two years in a row. The first back-to-back best actress winner was Luise Rainer, who won in 1936 for The Great Ziegfeld and in 1937 for The Good Earth.

    The 73rd Academy Awards honored the best films of 2000 and was held on March 25, 2001. It was the last Academy Awards to take place at the Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium. It was hosted by first-time host Steve Martin, who was nominated for an Emmy Award for his presentation. Notable films included Gladiator, which received 12 nominations and 5 awards, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, which received 10 nominations and 4 awards, as well as Traffic & Erin Brockovich, which both had 5 nominations, with Traffic winning 4 of them. After a three-year streak of high ratings, the annual ceremony received very low ratings for the first time in four years. This is partially due to the popularity of CBS's Survivor which was number one on the Nielsen Weekly Ratings. The awards show dropped to second place for the first time in broadcasting history (42.93 million viewers; with 21.1% of households watching). The second time the ceremony placed below the top happened in 2003 when it was surpassed by American Idol. Björk arrived in a gown with a fake swan draped across her.

    27th Academy Awards

    The 27th Academy Awards honored the best films produced in 1954. The Best Picture winner, On the Waterfront, was produced by Sam Spiegel and directed by Elia Kazan. It had twelve nominations and eight wins, matching two other films, Gone with the Wind (1939) and From Here to Eternity (1953), even though those two each had thirteen nominations. The low-budget, black and white On the Waterfront was filmed entirely on location in Hoboken and told the gritty story of New York dock workers, brutality, corruption, and embroilment with a gangster union boss. It provided an expose of union racketeering while showcasing the murder of an innocent longshoreman. Kazan and screenwriter Budd Schulberg justified their own naming of names (blacklisting-testimony against alleged Communists) as friendly witnesses before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) in the early 50s with the film's story of an heroic longshoreman informant Terry Malloy (Marlon Brando) who stood alone and turned witness against the corrupt and intimidating union bosses and became a marked 'pigeon'. A "rematch" occurred in the category of Best Actor, where Marlon Brando and Humphrey Bogart were competing again for

    During the 29th Academy Awards, the regular competitive category of Best Foreign Language Film was introduced, instead of only being recognized as a Special Achievement Award or as a Best Picture nominee (as in 1938). The first winner in this new category was Federico Fellini's La strada with Anthony Quinn and a second nomination for Best Original Screenplay. Its win would help spur an interest in foreign-language films. Another Fellini film, Nights of Cabiria would win the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar in the following year. This was also the first year that all of the five Best Picture nominees were in color. All of the major awards winners were large-scale epics - Mike Todd's Around the World in Eighty Days, The King and I, Anastasia, Giant, Cecil B. DeMille's The Ten Commandments (the highest grossing film of the year), King Vidor's War and Peace, and William Wyler's Friendly Persuasion. And the trend toward blockbusters and colorful spectaculars was established for years to come, with The Bridge on the River Kwai, Gigi, and Ben-Hur being subsequent Best Picture champions.

It matched the record 11 wins of Titanic and Ben-Hur and beat the previous record of Gigi and The Last Emperor for the largest sweep of every nominated category, both of which had achieved nine-for-nine. The big contenders for the 76th Academy Awards (for the best achievement in film in 2003) included The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and Lost in Translation, and in the highly competitive Best Actor category, with strong work from both Sean Penn and Bill Murray, amongst the other nominees. Penn eventually won the award, his first; he had previously lost the Oscar three

    The 68th Academy Awards were held on March 25, 1996, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. The show was hosted by Whoopi Goldberg. The ceremony was watched by 44.48 million viewers, with 30.5% of households tuning in. Despite controversy from the NAACP concerning what was deemed as a lack of attention to African-American actors by the Academy, this show was the one and only time an African-American (Quincy Jones) was hired to produce the show to date. Key moments in this presentation included Christopher Reeve making his first public appearance onstage after becoming paralyzed, and a Lifetime Achievement Award to Kirk Douglas (recovering from a stroke), and a tribute to Gene Kelly from Savion Glover (Kelly had died one month prior to the ceremonies). Best Documentary Feature winner Jon Blair introduced Miep Gies, the last survivor of the group of people who had sheltered Anne Frank and her family and 4 other people in their secret Amsterdam hiding place during World War II, and the person who had saved Anne Frank's now famous diary for posterity. The entire audience in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion gave Gies a lengthy standing ovation. Braveheart won five

    6th Academy Awards

    The 6th Academy Awards were held on March 16, 1934, at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California. They were hosted by Will Rogers and Rogers also presented all of the awards. Will Rogers presented the Academy Award for Best Director, and when he opened the envelope he simply announced, "Come up and get it, Frank!" Frank Capra, certain he was the winner, ran to the podium to collect the Oscar, only to discover Rogers had meant Frank Lloyd, who won for Cavalcade, instead. Possibly to downplay Rogers' gaffe, he then called third nominee George Cukor to join the two Franks on stage. This was the last time that the Oscar's film eligibility period was spread over two different calendar years, making this be the longest time frame for which films were allowed to be nominated (i.e., a film could have been nominated that was a year-and-a-half old). This was the last time that no film had more than four nominations. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    72nd Academy Awards

    The 72nd Academy Awards ceremony (also known as Oscars 2000) took place at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium, and was Billy Crystal's seventh time hosting the Awards. The ceremony attracted 46.53 million viewers, an audience 3.7% bigger than the previous ceremony. The Academy Awards ceremony was dominated by two films. The first was American Beauty, which was nominated in 8 categories and won 5 awards, including Best Picture. The other film, The Matrix, despite not being nominated for Best Picture, won 4 awards. Notably, this broadcast was the first Academy Awards ceremony broadcast to receive a TV Parental Guidelines rating of TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned), in part due to the showing of many American Beauty clips featuring scenes of sex, innuendo, and violence. Despite its containing an offensive word, the Oscar-nominated song "Blame Canada" (from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut) was performed, with performer Robin Williams cleverly "hiding" the word; he also added a line riffing Celine Dion. The first Oscar show to be rated under the TV Parental Guidelines was the 69th Academy Awards, broadcast in 1997, but it was rated TV-PG (Parental Guidance). It was also the first

    The 25th Academy Awards ceremony was held on March 19, 1953. It took place at the RKO Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California and the NBC International Theatre in New York City. It was the first Academy Awards ceremony to be televised, and the first ceremony to be held in Hollywood and New York City simultaneously. It was also the only year that the New York ceremonies were to be held in the International Theatre on Columbus Circle, which was shortly thereafter demolished and replaced by the New York Coliseum convention center. A major upset occurred in the category of Best Picture. The heavily-favored High Noon lost to Cecil B. DeMille's The Greatest Show on Earth, which is now considered among the worst films to have ever won the Academy Award for Best Picture. The American film magazine Premiere placed the movie on its list of the 10 worst Oscar winners and the British film magazine Empire rated it #3 on their list of the 10 worst Oscar winners. It has the lowest spot on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the 81 films to win Best Picture. The Bad and the Beautiful won 5 awards that night, making it the most wins ever for a film not nominated for Best Picture. It is also only the 2nd

    The 48th Academy Awards were presented March 29, 1976 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, George Segal, Goldie Hawn, and Gene Kelly. This year, ABC took over broadcast rights from NBC, and continues to hold them today. The most successful film of the ceremony was Miloš Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which became the first film since It Happened One Night to perform a "clean sweep" of the top categories; that is, winning Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay (Adapted). At age 80, George Burns became the oldest acting winner ever to that date. He was topped in 1990 by Jessica Tandy who was also 80 at the time, but older by a few months. He held the record for the oldest male and oldest supporting win until Christopher Plummer won in 2012 for Beginners at the age of 82. Jaws became the last film to be nominated for Best Picture and to win all of its awards except for Picture until Traffic 25 years later. Winners are highlighted in bold.

The ceremonies were presided over by Bob Hope, who hosted the awards for the eighteenth and last time. Two of the year's biggest winners were Star Wars, which swept the technical categories by winning 6 out of its 10 nominations and a Special Achievement for Sound Effects Editing, and Annie Hall, winning 4 out of 5 nominations, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. This incarnation of the awards show was also notable for a very politically charged acceptance speech by Vanessa Redgrave. The Turning Point set the record for the most nominations without a win with 11 nominations. It was previously held by Peyton Place and The Little Foxes which both had 9 noms with no wins. This still holds the record and is tied with The Color Purple for this record.

    The 40th Academy Awards honored film achievements of 1967. Originally scheduled for 8 April 1968, the awards were postponed to two days later, 10 April 1968, because of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.. Due to the increasing rarity of black and white feature films, the awards for cinematography, art direction and costume design were combined into single categories rather than a distinction between color and monochrome. The Best Picture nominees were an eclectic group of films reflecting the chaos of their era. Bob Hope was once again the host of the ceremony. The winner in the Best Picture category was director Norman Jewison's thriller/mystery film, In the Heat of the Night (with seven nominations and five wins – Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Screenplay, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound). The Graduate became the last film to ever take home best director and no other Oscar. Due to an all-out push by Academy President Gregory Peck, 18 of the 20 acting nominees were present at the ceremony.

    The 33rd Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 1960, were held on April 17, 1961 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, California. They were hosted by Bob Hope. The Apartment marked the last black and white film to win Best Picture during the era when use of black and white film was still common, as well as the last until 1993 when Schindler's List won. Gary Cooper was too ill to attend the ceremony, so his close friend James Stewart accepted the Honorary Oscar on his behalf. Stewart's emotional speech hinted that something was seriously wrong, and the next day newspapers ran the headline, "Gary Cooper has cancer." One month later, on May 13, 1961, six days after his 60th birthday, Cooper died. Winners are listed first and highlighted with boldface

Oliver! became the first—and so far, the only—G-rated film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. In stark contrast, the following year would see the only X-rated film to win Best Picture: Midnight Cowboy. As the special effects director and designer for 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stanley Kubrick was the recipient of the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects this year. It was the only Oscar he would ever win. Also, the year was notable in that for the first—and so far, the only—tie for Best Actress (or any female acting category). Katharine Hepburn in The Lion in Winter and Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl shared the award. Hepburn also became the second actress to win Best Actress two years in a row, after Luise Rainer in 1936 (The Great Ziegfeld) and 1937 (The Good Earth). The previous year, Hepburn had won Best Actress for Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. At the ceremony, Young Americans was announced as the Documentary Feature winner.

    The 2011 Olivier Awards was held on 13 March 2011 at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London.

    20th Academy Awards

    The 20th Academy Awards spread awards around, with no film receiving more than 3 awards, the last time this would happen until the 78th Academy Awards. The surprise winner for this year was Loretta Young for The Farmer's Daughter despite Rosalind Russell campaigning heavily for her performance in Mourning Becomes Electra. James Baskett received a special Oscar for portrayal of Uncle Remus in Song of the South, which had the effect of taking him out of the running for a Best Actor nomination. Nonetheless, civil rights organizations were unhappy at what was believed to be an unflattering portrait of African-Americans. At age 71 Edmund Gwenn was the oldest Oscar winner ever at that time, which was previously held by Charles Coburn who was 66 at the time of his win. He also held the record for many years until 1976 when George Burns won at age 80. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    21st Academy Awards

    The 21st Academy Awards features numerous firsts. It was the first time a non-Hollywood production won Best Picture, Hamlet. It was the first time an individual (Laurence Olivier) directed himself in an Oscar-winning performance. Director John Huston directs two Oscar-winning performances in the same year for two different films: his father Walter Huston in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Claire Trevor for Key Largo. The Huston family won three Oscars that evening. The ceremony was moved from the Shrine Auditorium to the Academy's own theater primarily because the major Hollywood studios had withdrawn their financial support in order to address rumors that they had been trying to influence voters. Jane Wyman became the first actor since the silent era to win an Oscar for a performance with no lines. Humphrey Bogart failed to receive a nomination for Best Actor in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, which is now considered one of the Academy’s greatest slights. This year introduced the award for Best Costumes presented by Elizabeth Taylor. Joan of Arc became the first film to get 7 nominations without being nominated for best picture.

Shirley Booth, appearing in a play in Philadelphia, presents the Best Actor award through a live broadcast cut-in, and privately receives the winner's name over the telephone from co-host Donald O'Connor. (Actor Fredric March co-hosted from New York City.) Gary Cooper filmed his presentation of the Best Actress award in advance on a set in Mexico, with O'Connor announcing the winner's name. All of the big winners in this year of 1953 were black-and-white films. The big winner was Fred Zinnemann's eight-Oscar winning From Here to Eternity (with thirteen nominations and eight awards including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Actress, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Daniel Taradash), Best Cinematography (Burnett Guffey), Best Sound, and Best Film Editing).

    31st Academy Awards

    To honor 1958's best films, the 31st Academy Awards ceremony was held on April 6, 1959. The show's producer, Jerry Wald, started cutting numbers from the show to make sure it ran on time. Unfortunately, he cut too much material and the ceremony ended 20 minutes early, leaving Jerry Lewis to attempt to fill in the time. Eventually, NBC cut to a re-run of a sports show. The film Gigi won nine Oscars, breaking Gone with the Wind's record of eight. It only lasted for one year, however, as Ben-Hur broke the record with eleven Oscars the following year. Gigi was also the last film until The Last Emperor to win best picture without any acting nominations. It also had the biggest clean sweep that would be met by The Last Emperor, winning all 9 of its nominations. The record was broken in 2003 by The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

While David Niven was introducing Elizabeth Taylor to present the award for best picture, a streaker named Robert Opel ran out from backstage, causing spontaneous laughter at the streaker's "shortcomings," as Niven put it. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface. The 46th Academy Awards ceremony is perhaps best remembered as the ceremony in which a streaker named Robert Opel ran across the stage naked while flashing a peace sign with his hand. In response, host David Niven jokingly quipped, "The only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping... and showing his shortcomings." In 2001, this incident was voted as the most memorable Oscar moment in history, coming in first over Marlon Brando's infamous 1972 boycott of the 45th Academy Awards, in which he sent Sacheen Littlefeather to explain why he would not be coming to collect his Oscar for The Godfather.

The nominations were announced on January 22, 2007. Basic Instinct 2 (which was dubbed by the ceremony as "Basically, It Stinks, Too") and Little Man both received the most nominations with seven. As has been the tradition, the nominations were announced one day prior to the Academy Awards nominations, with the award show scheduled one day prior to the Academy Awards ceremony. In recent years, the organizers have added awards that are for a single year only. Last year's Most Tiresome Tabloid Targets category was replaced this year with Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment, which "salutes the dearth of quality G and PG-rated movie fare in 2006." Also, this year the category Worst Remake or Sequel was split off into two separate categories: Worst Prequel or Sequel and Worst Remake or Rip-off. For the first time, the awards program was broadcast over the Internet on MSNBC.com, via cell phone.

    3rd Academy Awards

    The 3rd Academy Awards were awarded to films completed and screened in 1929/1930, by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. All Quiet on the Western Front became the first film to win both Best Picture and Best Director, a feat that would become common in later years. The Love Parade received six nominations, the greatest number of any film to that point. However, it did not win in any category. Best Sound Recording was introduced this year, making it the first new category since the inception of the Oscars. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    49th Academy Awards

    The 49th Academy Awards were presented March 28, 1977, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Richard Pryor, Jane Fonda, Ellen Burstyn, and Warren Beatty. This Academy Awards ceremony is notable for Peter Finch becoming the first posthumous winner of an Oscar for acting, a feat matched only by Heath Ledger 32 years later. Beatrice Straight set another record by becoming the actor with shortest performance ever in a film to win an acting Oscar, with only five minutes and forty seconds of screentime in Network. Another interesting thing that happened was that Piper Laurie, who was nominated for Carrie and who gotten her first nomination 15 years earlier for The Hustler, had no roles in between those 2 films. Thus, her 1st and 2nd nomination were for 2 consecutive roles, separated by 15 years. Winners are highlighted in bold.

    The 4th Academy Awards were awarded to films completed and screened in 1930/1931, by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. At the ceremony, nine-year-old Jackie Cooper, nominated for Best Actor in Skippy, fell asleep on the shoulder of Best Actress nominee Marie Dressler. When Dressler was announced as the winner, Cooper had to be eased onto his mother’s lap. Cimarron was the first Western to ever win Best Picture, and it was the only one to do so for 59 years (until Dances with Wolves won in 1990). Cimarron was also the first film to earn seven nominations, breaking the nomination record. It was the first film to ever win more than two awards. Jackie Cooper became the first child star to receive a nomination, and he was the youngest for nearly 50 years. He is the second youngest Oscar nominee ever and the only Best Actor nominee under age 18. In addition, Cimarron and A Free Soul became the first two movies to receive multiple acting nominations. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    The 52nd Academy Awards were presented April 14, 1980 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Johnny Carson, who in noting the long duration of the production, joked that President Jimmy Carter was working hard for their "release" from the ceremonies, a clear reference to the Iranian hostage crisis. Among the nominees for Best Supporting Actor were 8 year-old Justin Henry - the youngest Best Supporting Actor nominee ever - and 79 year-old Melvyn Douglas. This was the largest age difference between two competing actors in Oscar history. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

    The 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards were held on September 18, 2005, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. The 2005 Primetime Emmy Awards show was broadcast on CBS. The show, which aired three weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit, featured a mini-telethon for Habitat for Humanity and gave DeGeneres more opportunity to use the show to somberly remember the victims of the Gulf Coast. Opening the show was the famous 1970's band Earth Wind & Fire with a comedic version of "September", in collaboration with The Black Eyed Peas. The show featured tributes to ABC-TV anchor Peter Jennings (who died seven weeks earlier) presented by rival anchors Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw and to talk show host Johnny Carson (who died in January 2005) by close friend and Late Show host David Letterman. Also, the show featured Emmy Idol, five segments in which famous TV stars performed popular TV theme songs in a format like American Idol. The following is a partial list of nominees, with winners in bold: Eddie Albert, Mason Adams, Barbara Bel Geddes, Anne Bancroft, William Bell, Bob Denver, Dana Elcar, Rodney Dangerfield, Greg Garrison, John Fiedler, Ossie Davis, Frank Gorshin, Perry Lafferty, Howard Morris, James

    16th Academy Awards

    The 16th Academy Awards, in 1944, was the first Oscar ceremony held at a large public venue, Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Free passes were given out to men and women in uniform. The more theatrical approach makes it a forerunner of the contemporary Oscar telecast. For the first time, supporting actors and actresses took home full-size statuettes, instead of smaller-sized awards mounted on a plaque. This was the last year until 2009 to have 10 nominations for best picture. Also The Ox-Bow Incident was the last film to be nominated for best picture and nothing else. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

Through the 1940s, the ceremony and academy rules continued to evolve into the form by which we know them today. This is the first year that the Best Picture category was limited to 5 pictures. This was also the first and last time an individual was nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for playing the same role in the same film. Barry Fitzgerald was nominated in both categories for the character of Father Fitzgibbon in Going My Way. He won for Best Supporting Actor. Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.

AMPAS president Douglas Fairbanks hosted the show. Tickets cost five dollars, 270 people attended the event and the ceremony lasted fifteen minutes. Awards were created by Louis B. Mayer, founder of Louis B. Mayer Pictures Corporation (at present merged into Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer). It is the only Academy Awards ceremony not to be broadcast either on radio or television. During the ceremony, the AMPAS presented Academy Awards (now commonly referred to as Oscars) in twelve categories. Winners were announced three months before the live event. Some nominations were announced without reference to a specific film, such as for Ralph Hammeras and Nugent Slaughter, who received nominations in the now defunct category of Engineering Effects. Unlike later ceremonies, an actor or director could be awarded for multiple works within a year. Emil Jannings, for example, was given the Best Actor award for his work in both The Way of All Flesh

    The 57th Academy Awards were presented March 25, 1985 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Jack Lemmon. This ceremony is best-remembered for perhaps the most quoted and famous Academy Award acceptance speech ever. Upon winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Places in the Heart, Sally Field exclaimed, "The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!" (often misquoted as "you really like me!") The winner of Best Supporting Actor was also significant. Haing S. Ngor, a Cambodian surgeon who survived the horrors of the Khmer Rouge, won the award for his performance as Dith Pran in Roland Joffé's The Killing Fields, despite having no previous acting experience. Ngor and Harold Russell are the only two non-professional actors to win Academy Awards for acting. 77 year-old Peggy Ashcroft won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in A Passage to India, making her the oldest winner in that category.

    The 62nd Academy Awards were presented March 26, 1990 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. The venue, half the size of the one used the previous year, prompted Gil Cates (the producer of the telecast) and Karl Malden (the president of the Academy) to put a memo to "our friends in the industry" in the March 13th edition of the Daily Variety saying "Please understand: the tickets are gone" and pointing out that "next year we'll be back in comparatively spacious quarters, and then we'll try to find room for every Academy member who wants to attend, and maybe even some of the aunts, archbishops, and visitors from Abu Dhabi who are your houseguests that weekend." The event, billed as Around the World in 3½ Hours - The 62d Academy Awards Presentation, featured live segments from five other cities around the globe: This was the first telecast hosted by Billy Crystal; he would host the show eight more times over the next twenty-two years. Crystal opened the ceremony with a song about the nominees for best picture, something he would do for every ceremony he hosted.

    64th Academy Awards

    The 64th Academy Awards were presented March 30, 1992 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The show was the third consecutive to be hosted by Billy Crystal. When Jack Palance won Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Curly in City Slickers (which also starred Crystal), Palance's acceptance speech began with the joke "I crap bigger than him (Crystal)" -- a reference to a similar line in the film. Palance also used some of his speech time to prove his virility by performing one-handed push-ups. In mock retaliation for Palance's comment, Crystal peppered the remainder of the telecast with jokes about Palance performing spectacular feats. As a result, Crystal won an Emmy for hosting the show, although he later (in the documentary Get Bruce) credited Bruce Vilanch for providing him many of the Palance jokes. The Silence of the Lambs won the five major awards out of seven nominations, becoming only the third film to accomplish the feat of winning the "Top Five", after It Happened One Night (1934) and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975).

    70th Academy Awards

    The 70th Academy Awards were noted for their high ratings and the 11 wins obtained by the Best Picture Titanic. Billy Crystal hosted the ceremony for the sixth time, and received an Emmy award for his performance. Titanic dominated the evening picking up 11 awards out of 14 nominations. The film tied with the most awards nominated with All About Eve and tied with the most awards won with Ben-Hur. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King would also match that record in 2004. Due to the popularity of Titanic, which was the #1 movie at the box office at the time, the show earned its highest ratings ever in history based on audience size (57.25 million). Other notable films were As Good as It Gets, which received seven nominations and two awards, including Best Actor and Best Actress and Good Will Hunting, which received nine nominations and also won two awards. In addition, the ceremony was also the last time all four winning acting performances were not based on biographies and all four winning acting performers were American Winners are listed first and highlighted with boldface Presented by Whoopi Goldberg.

It was produced by Gil Cates and hosted for the second time by Steve Martin. The nominees were announced on February 11, 2003, by Academy president Frank Pierson and actress Marisa Tomei, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in the Academy's Beverly Hills headquarters. Chicago led the nominations with thirteen. The film went on to win six Oscars including Best Picture, the first musical to win this category since Oliver! in 1968. It also is as of 2012 the last film to take home Best Picture and Best Supporting actress. Roman Polanski, who was nominated for the fourth time, won the Oscar for Best Director. Eminem's song "Lose Yourself" became the first Hip Hop song to win an Academy Award. Adrien Brody, at age 29, became the youngest ever recipient of the Best Actor Award for his role in The Pianist.

    The 7th Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 1934, were held on February 27, 1935, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California. They were hosted by Irvin S. Cobb. Frank Capra's influential romantic comedy It Happened One Night became the first film to perform a "clean sweep" of the top five award categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay. This feat would later be duplicated by One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 1976 and The Silence of the Lambs in 1992. It also was the first romantic comedy to be named Best Picture. For the first time, the Academy standardized the practice – still in effect – that the award eligibility period for a film would be the preceding calendar year. This was also the first of only two years in which write-in candidates were allowed by the Academy as a tacit response to the controversy surrounding the snub of Bette Davis' performance in Of Human Bondage. The categories of Best Editing, Best Original Score, and Best Original Song were first introduced this year.
