      • The program won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Program - Special Events.

      • Due to the angry protests going on in front of the theater, the academy asked that the attendees not stand on the sidewalk to wait for their limosines. Instead, security would walk them to their cars through the underground parking garage. This, however, did not fare well for Honorary recipient Walter Lantz who arrived at his car only to find that his pocket had been picked.
