The surprise tie in this year's Best Sound Editing category officially makes this year's Oscars one for the record books: It's only the sixth time a tie has happened in Oscar history and the first in a technical category.
"Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall" shared this year's Sound Editing award -- beating out "Argo," "Django Unchained" and "Life of Pi." (In an odd coincidence, both Kathryn Bigelow's acclaimed "Zero" and the blockbuster James Bond film "Skyfall" were both distributed by Sony Pictures.)
Perhaps the most famous tie happened in 1968, when Barbara Steisand's "Funny Girl" breakout performance tied with legendary Katherine Hepburn's turn in "The Lion in Winter" for Best Actress. We know from the record books that that was an exact tie, each actress received the same number of votes.
However, historically, Oscar will declare a tie if two nominees come within a few votes of each other. »
According to the AMPAs database, the first happened in 1931-32, when Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde’s Frederic March and The Champ’s Wallace Beery each won the Best Actor award. However, the vote count wasn’t an actual tie — Beery received one more than March, but the rules at the time stated two winners would be honored if the count was within three votes. The rule subsequently changed. »

At this year's Academy Awards, there was a tie (gasp!). It was in the Best Sound Editing category, with the award going to Paul N.J. Ottosson for his work in "Zero Dark Thirty," and Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers for their work in "Skyfall." However, this wasn't the first time a tie happened at the Oscars. Back in 1969, both Katherine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand won in a much more publicized category -- Best Actress -- with Hepburn winning for her performance as Queen Eleanor in "The Lion in Winter," and Streisand as Fanny Brice in "Funny Girl." It also happened in 1932, with both Wallace Beery ("The Champ") and Frederic March ("Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") winning Best Actor; in 1949, when "A Chance to Live" and "So Much for So Little" won the Best Documentary Short award; in 1986, with "Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got" and "Down and Out in America »
