After 89 years, the Oscars have seen some pretty incredible milestones. From the number of actors to get awards for their debut films, to the living figure with the most nominations, here are the biggest academy award milestones in Oscars History.
The first Academy Awards was hosted in 1929, 270 people attended the event and tickets cost five dollars. Since then, things have gotten a lot more expensive. Nowadays, the Academy even makes nameplates for all of the potential winners ahead of time. Did you know that the reason why the Oscars uses sealed envelopes is because in 1940, the Los Angeles Times broke the Academy’s embargo and published the names of the winners prior to the ceremony. As long as Steve Harvey isn’t announcing anything, things should be gravy this year.
