ⓘ 18th Academy Awards

The 18th Academy Awards was the first such ceremony after World War II. As a result, the ceremony featured more glamour than had been present during the war. Plaster statuettes that had been given out during the war years were replaced with bronze statuettes with gold plating. Despite this, director Billy Wilders grim and socially significant drama The Lost Weekend took the top honors. It became the first film to win both the Academy Award for Best Picture and the Palme dOr. Joan Crawford was absent, claiming she had pneumonia. As it turned out she did win, and the award was delivered to her while in bed that night.

This was the first year in which every film nominated for Best Picture won at least one Oscar.
