Trivia

Peter Finch had been encouraged by director Sidney Lumet to campaign for Oscar for Best Actor for _Network (1976)_ and had decided to join him on Good Morning America (1975). They met in the Beverly Hills Hotel on the morning of January 14, 1977, where suddenly Finch clutched his chest and died of a heart attack. Three months later, he became the first actor to win the Best Actor award posthumously. See more »

Barbra Streisand performs for the first time on the Academy Awards!!
9 March 2003 | by SkippyDevereauxSee all my reviews

Although "Network" won four awards and "Rocky" won the big prize, what stands out in my mind is that Barbra Streisand sang for the first and I believe the only time in Oscar history. She sang her own song, "Evergreen" from "A Star Is Born" and also won the award for "Best Song"!! Personally, I was rooting for "All the President's Men" to win the Best Picture honors, but it did not.
