The Results Will Be Televised
1953 Once upon a time, the Oscars were a nice party for Hollywood's greatest to gather, receive some applause and maybe get a little smashed. But it all changed in 1953 when the first ceremony was televised and the event became the all-encompassing hoopla it is today. Red carpet outfit bitching and Billy Bush being rubbish didn't follow until much later.
Uma/Oprah...Keanu
1995 The greatest living talk show host, David Letterman, came unstuck when called upon to present the 67th awards. It started poorly, with his thudding joke in which he introduced Uma Thurman and Opran Winfrey to each other, and then both to Keanu Reeves - because, like, they all have funny names. Then it just got worse. Confession: we actually quite like his 'Would you like to buy a monkey?' bit.
Walt Wins
1942 Walt Disney was the recipient of many competitive Oscars, but he was also bestowed with three honorary prizes. The first was given for inventing Mickey Mouse; the second for creating Snow White, the first feature-length animation (this came with seven little Oscars); but the third, The Irving G Thalberg Award, proved too much for the animation great and he spent most of the speech misty-eyed.
Gooding Jr's Gush
1996 It was supposed to be Tom Cruise's night. Jerry Maguire was expected to be the movie that finally won Hollywood's biggest star an Oscar (the one he should have received for Rain Man - yes, over Dustin Hoffman). But, while Cruise went home empty-handed, his co-star Cuba Gooding Jr. grabbed Best Supporting Actor. Even as the band struck up to usher him off stage, Gooding Jr. charged through his speech, thanking - and loving - everyone and bringing the audience to its feet.
