To mark the occasion of Oscar's 70th birthday, the show featured a segment called "Oscar's Family Album" in which the academy invited every living actor who had ever won an Oscar in the four acting categories, honorary recipients and some who had received the now defunct juvenile acting award. They were seated on riser benches and the camera went from actor to actor and announced their name and the film for which they had received an Oscar. Of the 134 recipients who were still living, 70 attended. Marlon Brando
and George C. Scott
who had both refused their Oscars years earlier were not invited. Due to a clerical error the invitation sent to Dorothy Malone
did not arrive, an oversight which is said to have angered her. See more
Thank you very much to the members of the Academy for this, and I - the other nominees, some of them are very good friends of mine. And I am honored to be on any list with you, Bobby, Dusty, and you and your father, Mr. Damon, my old bike pal Fonda. We're very proud of the picture. We had like, I don't know, I've had a sinking feeling all night right up till here. Something about it. We had Jim Brooks, Maria Kavanaugh, Kristi Zea, Bridget Johnson, Peter Andros*, Laura Ziskin, so many producers ...
Hooray for Hollywood
