    You forgot the two times there were ties in the competition for Best Actor and Actress. In 1932, two Best Actor Oscars were given to Wallace Beery for “The Champ” and frederic March for “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” (March got his second Oscar for 1946’s “Best Years Of Our Lives”) In 1968, Kate Hepburn shared the fourth of her Oscars, for “The Lion In Winter”, with Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl”.

    You neglected to mention that the “native American” who refused the Oscar for Brando was not, in fact, a native American but an actress. As for Brando not accepting the Oscar, I guess the Academy made him an offer he could refuse.

      I thought that too, and looked it up, and it turns out Sacheen Littlefeather really is a native American. It is a stage name (obviously), her birth name sounds Mexican.

    You forgot that “Sunrise” was also the first Best Picture winner and that it was also a silent film. Woops.

    I guess since “The Artist” won last recently, #7 needs to be amended or changed :)

    While you informed us WHO the oldest Oscar winner in history was (Jessica Tandy), you forgot to tell us how old she was when she won the award. OOPS! :)
