The Academy Awards are this Sunday evening, and we’re counting down the minutes!
We’ve already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we’re bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the “one dollar” Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don’t know about the Oscars.
1. The youngest Oscar winner was Tatum O’Neal, who won Best Supporting Actress for “Paper Moon” (1973) when she was only 10 years old. Shirley Temple won the short-lived Juvenile Award at 6 years old.
2. At 82, Christopher Plummer became the oldest person to win an Academy Award. He received the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in “Beginners” (2010) opposite Ewan McGregor.
