ACADEMY AWARDS 1 DVD 1959 31ST ACADEMY AWARDS sharp crisp blk and white - INTRO SAYS 120 MIN BROADCAST ---BUT THIS DISC IS 51 minutes - NBC BROADCAST -- BASIC FACTS - The 31st Academy Awards ceremony was held on April 6, 1959, to honor the best films of 1958. The show's producer, Jerry Wald, started cutting numbers from the show to make sure it ran on time. 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 the previous record of eight (set by Gone with the Wind and tied by From Here to Eternity and On the Waterfront). It would be short-lived, however, as Ben-Hur broke the record with eleven Oscars the following year. - Gigi was 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 with all 11 of its nominations, also another record of most Oscar wins with Ben-Hur and Titanic. - The ceremony was hosted by an ensemble of actors: Jerry Lewis, Mort Sahl, Tony Randall, Bob Hope, David Niven, and Laurence Olivier. Niven won Best Actor that night, making him the only host in Oscar history to have won an award during the same ceremony. - Date April 6, 1959 - Site Pantages Theatre, Hollywood, California, USA
