Trivia

Robert De Niro started with the "awards show ribbon" trend by wearing a green ribbon on his lapel during this ceremony. The ribbon was in rememberance of several African-American children who were victims of a serial killer in Atlanta, Georgia in 1980-1981. A fan gave him the ribbon when he arrived; the victims' families had been wearing them for months. See more »
