Fight from Inception


James Franco and Anne Hathaway shared hosting duties, making this the last time that there more than 2 hosts hosting the same ceremony. This is also the first year in which easier-to-open enveloes were established. Francis Ford Coppola was given the Irving G Thalberg Memorial Award for high quality production and 3 honorary Oscars were given out. One to Kevin Brownlow for the wise and devoted chronicling of cinematic parades. One to Jean-Luc Goddard for passion and confrontation and one to Eli Wallach for a lifetime's worth of unforgettable characters.
