DID YOU KNOW? Oscar trivia & fun facts

1989: worst Oscars ever.

• Midnight Cowboy (1969) is the only X-rated film to ever win the Best Picture award.

• There's a reason that stars who accept the Oscar statue are surprised by its sheer weight. Each 24-karat gold-plated Oscar award stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs around 8 1/2 lbs. or about the equivalent of a gallon of milk.

The worst Oscars performance of all time goes to unlucky aspiring actress Eileen Bowman who appeared as Snow White to serenade stars such as Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, and Sigourney Weaver sitting in the audience (with a young Rob Lowe later taking the stage with her.) If the look of horror on the stars' faces wasn't enough, the The New York Times declared the next morning that the show had earned "a permanent place in the annals of Oscar embarrassments."

• In 1974, actor David Niven appeared to introduce the Best Picture nominees when a streaker stormed the stage and ran behind him. The witty British actor quickly remarked, "The only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping ... and showing his shortcomings.”

• After the Los Angeles Times leaked the complete winners list the night before, Hollywood stars such as Vivien Leigh (Best Actress for "Gone with Wind") arrived at the Oscars ceremony in 1940 already aware that they'd won. Since then, Academy voting results have been a closely guarded secret.
