News and recap

The most memorable event of the night was when Stan Berman, a New York City cabdriver, awarded Bob Hope a homemade Oscar after he had slipped through security and made his way to the stage. Both Jackie Gleason (in "The Hustler") and Judy Garland (in "Judgment At Nuremberg") were heavily favored to win the awards for best supporting actor and actress. However, they were defeated by George Chakiris and Rita Moreno as part of the "West Side Story" sweep. The musical film wound up winning a total of ten Academy Awards including Best Picture. For the first time, two directors shared the award in the Directing category (Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins for "West Side Story").
