Hattie McDaniel Wins
"It's a tie!"
1968 Before going on to announce the winner of Best Supporting Actress in 1968, Ingrid Bergman was instructed to read the contents of the envelope. And not without reason. "It's a tie!" she cried as she opened the envelope very carefully. For the first and only time in Oscar history, two people won the award, in this case Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn. They got a statue each, though.
The Idiot Rules
1995 When he took the stage to be named writer of Best Original Screenplay for Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino predicted that "this will be the only time I'm up here tonight". He was right, as Forrest Gump inexplicably went on to take Best Director and Picture. It also beat The Shawshank Redemption.
The Matt and Ben Show
1998 If there was a single soul in the world who didn't love Matt Damon and Ben Affleck after their acceptance speech for Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting, they were probably a pod person. The childhood pals stammered and giggled with all the enthusiasm of a pair of teenage boys who'd just been informed of the existence of boobs.
Hattie McDaniel Wins
1940 Oscar ground was broken at the 1940 ceremony as Hattie McDaniel became the first black actor nominated and the first to win. It would, however, be another 23 years before a black actor, Sidney Poitier, won in either of the leading categories and 62 years before Halle Berry won Best Actress.
