The Oscars

The 70th Academy Awards hosted by Billy Crystal at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Center on Monday, March 23, 1998, honoring movies released in 1997. "Titanic" received 14 nominations, which tied it with 1950's "All about Eve" for the most nominations ever earned by a single film. It also tied the record for wins set by "Ben-Hur" in 1959. For only the third time in Academy history, the year's Oscar-winning song ("My Heart Will Go On") was from the movie that won Best Picture. The two previous instances were "Swinging on a Star" from "Going My Way" in 1944 and "Gigi" from "Gigi" in 1958.
