The 8th Academy Awards were held on March 5, 1936, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California. They were hosted by Frank Capra. This was the first year in which the gold statuettes were called "Oscars".

The category of Best Dance Direction was introduced this year. The DGA successfully lobbied for its elimination three years later.

Mutiny on the Bounty became the last film to date to win Best Picture and nothing else (following The Broadway Melody and Grand Hotel), and the only film to receive three nominations for Best Actor.

This was the second and last year that write-in votes were allowed at the Oscars. A Midsummer Night's Dream became the only film to win a write-in Oscar, taking Best Cinematography.

Write-in nominee Sherry Shourds would be the only woman to be nominated in the short-lived Best Assistant Director category.
