This year, the event is hostless. A new major tie vote was constituted. This time in the Best Actress category between Barbra Streisand and Katherine Hepburn who became the second actress, after Luise Rainer to win the best actress award 2 years in a row. She is the third overall, after Spencer Tracy who passed away that year. At the ceremony, Young Americans was the Documentary Feature winner, but 3 weeks and 2 days after the ceremony, it was found the movie first premiered in 1967, causing its win to be revoked. Journey Into Self was given the win the day after. There was controversy over Johnny Carson and Buddy Hackett's routine, in which they correctly predicted that Oliver would win Best Picture, and so the people at Price Waterhouse were fired. But in later years, it was revealed by Price Waterhouse that they were just making lucky guesses, and were keeping the balloting process integrity intact. Martha Rae was given a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award while 2 honorary Oscars were given out. one to Onna White for her choreographic work on Oliver! and one to John Chambers for his makeup work on Planet Of The Apes. Meanwile, 2 Scientific Technical Awards were rewarded one to Philip V. Palmquist of Minnesota Mining and Manufacture Co., to Herbert Meyer of the Motion Picture and Television Research Center, and to Charles D.
