The 15th Academy Awards was held in the Cocoanut Grove at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Best Picture honors went to the film Mrs. Miniver. The ceremony is most famous for the speech by the film’s Oscar-winning actress Greer Garson. Garson’s acceptance speech as Best Actress ran nearly 6 minutes and is generally considered to be the longest acceptance speech at an Academy Awards ceremony.

Mrs. Miniver was the second film (after My Man Godfrey in 1936) to received nominations in all four acting categories, as well as the first film to garner five acting nominations.

Also notable at the ceremony, Irving Berlin presented the Academy Award for Best Song, which he ended up winning for "White Christmas".

Best Documentary had four winners, something that has not happened before or since.

A portion of the ceremony was broadcast by CBS Radio.[1]
