Behind the Oscar
Since Hattie McDaniel was the only black to win an Oscar before him, Sidney Poitier was aware of the importance of the occasion when he accepted his Oscar. He was practically the only winner in the acting categories who showed up. Patricia Neal, who won for Hud, was expecting a baby in England, and the rest of the winners were abroad also. Sammy Davis got the only laugh in a rather dull evening when he remarked upon receiving the wrong envelope: "Wait until the NAACP hears about this!"
