With the exception of Frank Sinatra
who was given a 'Special' Memorial Tribute, this was the first year that all of the actual actors featured in this year's In Memoriam tribute had never once been nominated, nor won an Oscar for an acting category. The one actress that died within the time period before this year's showing, Peggy Cass
, was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Auntie Mame
(1958), however she not featured in the tributes. See more
