A bit of trivia mentioned in Inside Oscar is that due to some dispute, there was no national radio broadcast, just a local one. It could be that those awards were presented outside of the broadcast which may have been limited to the time mandated by the station. If so, it's likely there was no ceremony. They were just handed out after the broadcast ended.

Also, does anyone know of a good resource for when, where, and who hosted the separate sci-tech awards? I'm trying to be as thorough as possible on my awards coverage, but I wasn't able to find the info on Wikipedia.

That makes me wonder where the special awards for Harry M. Warner, Spawn of the North, Oliver Marsh & Allen Davey, and J. Arthur Ball were presented.

Picture for 1945 is correct. I'll check on 1938 later.

Do I have Best Picture in the wrong spot? Several years had Picture presented earlier in the evening than at the end. Is this right? And what does Inside Oscar show?

And every time I go into my spreadsheet, I catch something that I skipped (even after highlighting them)

At the 11th Oscars for 1938. I have one sources that shows the special awards being given out, then Sci-Tech, then Film Editing, then Cinematography. However, I have another source that has the special awards being given out between Best Picture and the Thalberg award, followed by the acting awards.

Inside Oscar doesn't provide the answer, but the nominated songs were sung between the 1945 writing and directing awards which would suggest that the award was given at the end of that presentation.

Another thing:

for the 68th Oscars for 1995, I have the introduction of the original song nominee "You've Got a Friend in Me" between the presentation of the honorary award to John Lasseter and Animated Short Film, but somehow I don't have who introduced the performance. Nor does Wikipedia.

Ceremony Help Again

Postby OscarGuy » Sun Apr 01, 2018 6:33 pm

Ok. So, the Margaret Herrick library cut me off for help. I've managed to piece together a lot of stuff, but I have one last sticking point.

The 18th Oscars for 1945, I have the ceremony order thus:

Show Introduction
Animated Short Film
Live Action Short Film (One-Reel)
Live Action Short Film (Two-Reel)
Documentary Feature
Documentary Short Subject
Scientific & Technical Awards
Film Editing
Sound Mixing
Special Effects
Special Award: Walter Wanger
Production Design
Cinematography
Original Song
Picture
Writing: Original Motion Picture Story
Writing: Original Screenplay
Writing: Screenplay
Directing
Special Award: "The House I Live In"
Special Award: Peggy Ann Garner
Supporting Actor
Supporting Actress
Actor
Actress

When seeking help on this list, the person helping me said something confusing. She said that original song was presented between cinematography and writing, but I have Best Picture in that spot. What am I missing about the above order and what she's saying? I stuck song in before Picture, after Cinematography.
