Brando's role as Vito Corleone in "The Godfather" remains a signature performance in movie history. Which Academy oversight have we overlooked and who have we unfairly dismissed?
Besides Hollywood legends, political royalty has also attended the ceremony: Lynda Byrd Johnson - daughter of former U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson - was in attendance at the 1966 ceremony, sporting an orange satin gown as she sat alongside George Hamilton. She's an awesome actress who previously won an Oscar for her role in Fargo in 1996.
But the 2017 backstage envelope mix-up that saw the top prize in the movie industry briefly being awarded to "La La Land" rather than actual victor "Moonlight" may pale in relation to the task facing Kimmel when he returns as Oscar master of ceremonies for a second year. "There had been some controversy, like when George C. Scott refused his Oscar for "Patton" (which came out in 1970)".
As we saw with last year's Envelopegate, when the coveted Best Picture award was given to the wrong movie ("La La Land") before Academy boneheads corrected the faux pas (sorry about that, "Moonlight"), Oscar never follows the rules anyway.
Which makes guessing who's going to win a little bit trickier. But their time is up. That's also the prediction from The New York Times' Cara Buckley.
"Call Me by Your Name, Get Out and Lady Bird are all great, but they're small indie films". Last year's screw-up with "La La Land" and "Moonlight" was a ideal storm of gross, so the first black gay movie ever to win has to come in through the back door - "No, wait!" When Jane Fonda, the most politicized of actresses, won for "Klute" in 1972, her speech was brief and uneventful.
"I'm writing it now, an idea I've had for a while", he says. In three weeks, it has already grossed $500 million domestically a kind of tally that dwarfs most of this year's Oscar nominees.
This means that with the eight hour time difference, the red carpet starts at 11pm Irish time and the ceremony begins at 1.30am on Monday morning.
Things went expected in the acting categories, where three widely admired veteran actors won their first Oscars.
During the acceptance speech, the victor becomes really emotional. But some of that momentum was blunted amid a backlash over the movie's racial politics.
On Sunday, he became the fourth Mexican director to win a best filmmaking Oscar in the last five years, joining his friends, Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity) and Alejandro G. Inarritu (Birdman, The Revenant) in the victor's circle.
Moreno was understandably concerned about the winner's envelope after last year's best picture mix-up. He makes every moment he's in memorable, whether he's escorting a suspicious character off of the property of a low-rent motel on the outskirts of Orlando, or just trying to count the rent money.
21 - Meryl Streep has beaten her own record to have the most ever Oscar nominations with 21.
The sexual misconduct scandal has led to the downfall of dozens of once-powerful men in Hollywood and beyond, and has overshadowed the movie industry's awards season celebrations. "They are not just cartoons", Mr. Kuntz said.
"Darkest Hour" won for best makeup. They were met by a standing ovation. Whoever's office it is, they've displayed their industry awards proudly on a shelf, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Whoopi Goldberg, host of the 1994 show, hurried out a list of causes during her opening monologue. Peace in Bosnia. Health care reform. Women's rights. Human rights. Free the Chinese dissidents.
