Behind the Oscar
The 1st of only 2 tie votes in Academy Award history. Fredric March led Wallace Berry in the balloting by one vote, and the rules (later changed) stated that if leader and runner-up were only 3 votes apart, they were both considered winners. This was unexpected, and the Academy was short one Oscar. A runner was sent out to pick up a spare one. Walt Disney made off with 2 awards. His 1st was for the creation of Mickey Mouse.
