Trivia

This was the year in which the Academy Awards and Vanessa Redgrave collided over her political activism. Over the previous year, Redgrave had been an outspoken supporter of the Palestinians and their struggle to end their conflict with Israel. This made her a target of several Israeli militants and, on the evening of the Academy Awards protests gathered outside the and burned the actress in effigy. Redgrave had to be snuck in the back of an ambulance through a secret entrance to get her safely into the theater. The fury didn't just happen outside; when Redgrave won Best Supporting Actress for Julia (1977), she used her acceptance speech as a promotion for her political beliefs, calling attention to "a small bunch of Zionist hoodlums". Most people in the industry derided her for her comments and historians have cited it as one of the lowest moments in the history of the Academy Awards. After the ceremony, Redgrave went to dinner accompanied by her bodyguards and no one would speak to her. See more »

50 Years of movie stardom
10 February 2001 | by (Warren, MI) – See all my reviews

This was the Golden year of cinema. A tribute to all who contributed to the entertainment industry. It was also the first and last time that a tribute was made to the young juvenile actors who previously won an award. Peggy Ann Garner and Margaret O'Brien were part of a "Big Parade" of previous oscar winners.
