Description:
The 63rd Academy Awards were presented March 25, 1991 at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles. The show was hosted by Billy Crystal.

The prominent winner was Dances with Wolves which earned seven Oscars, including Best Picture. Joe Pesci winning Best Supporting Actor. Whoopi Goldberg made history in becoming the second African-American actress to ever win an Academy Award (the first being Hattie McDaniel in 1939).

Seven members of Reba McEntire's band and her road manager were among 10 who died in a March 16, 1991 plane crash near San Diego, California. There was a minor controversy over her decision to perform on the Academy Awards a week after the crash. But, she appeared on the show to dedicate the nominated song, I'm Checking Out, from the film Postcards from the Edge, to her fallen band members. During the performance, McEntire was visibly emotional.

Billy Crystal won two Emmys, for writing and for his hosting performance, for this telecast.
