Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin share hosting duties. This would (so far) be the last time that there would be more than two hosts. Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman director to win an Oscar for directing. A tribute was paid to the late Jonathan Hughes by stars such as Matthew Broderick, Molly Ringwald, and Judd Nelson. And for the first time since 1943, there were 10 or 9 films nominated for the Best Picture prize. John Calley was given the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award and three honorary Oscars were given. One to Roger Corman for his rich endearing of films and filmmakers, one to Godon Willis for unsurpassed mastery of light, shadow, color, and motion and one to Lauren Bacall in recognition of her central place in motion pictures.
