The Oscars

The 41st Academy Awards held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Monday, April 14, 1969, honoring movies released in 1968. Katharine Hepburn became the first person to win three Academy Awards in either the Best Actor or Best Actress categories. This latest win, however, was in a tie with Barbra Streisand. This was the second time in Academy history two performers had tied for an Academy Award. Hepburn also became the third individual to win the honor in consecutive years. Her 11 acting nominations were also a new record.
