The 77th Annual Academy Awards (2005) Poster

(2005 TV Special)

Trivia

Antonio Banderas performed (along with Carlos Santana) the theme song from The Motorcycle Diaries (2004) instead of singer/composer Jorge Drexler who performed in the movie but wasn't chosen by the Academy for the live show because he wasn't famous. Drexler eventually won the Oscar and instead of making a speech thanking everybody, he just kept singing the chorus of the song in the way it was supposed to be performed.
