  • Episode Description
  • "The 78th Annual Academy Awards" were held on Sunday March 5, 2006 from the Kodak Theatre, Hollywood & Highland. This year's awards continued the trend of nominating films produced independently, veering away from the big-budget blockbusters as four of the Best Picture nominees were independently-financed. The awarding ceremonies was hosted by talk show host Jon Stewart. (Click here to see List of Nominees and Winners.)

    • The program won 4 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Art Direction for a Variety, Music Program, or Special, Outstanding Directing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program, Outstanding Main Title Design and Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety or Music Series or Special or Animation.

    • This is the first time since 1948 where no film received more than three awards for anything.

    • For the first and only time, all five Best Director nominees directed a film nominated for Best Picture.

    Trivia (1)

    • Presenter Jennifer Garner wore a Michael Kors dress and over $1,000,000 worth of diamond jewelry. Because the $250,000 chandelier-earrings she wore were designed for pierced ears, Jennifer had to have her ears pierced a few weeks before the ceremony to be able to wear them.
