Behind the Oscar
For the 1st time--it would only happen 3 times in Academy history--Both acting winners absent from the big night. Will Rogers was MC, and he really flubbed his lines. Announcing the winning director, he spoke of his "good friend Frank"--then hesitated--and Frank Capra had started toward the stage when Rogers concluded, "Frank Lloyd, the winner." Then Will Rogers summoned 2 of the best actress nominees, Diana Wynyard and May Robson, to the stage. They came up thinking they had won in a tie, but Rogers thanked them for their performances and then announced that the winner was--katharine Hepburn!
