Description:
The 64th Academy Awards were presented March 30, 1992 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The show was the third consecutive to be hosted by Billy Crystal. When Jack Palance won Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Curly in City Slickers (which also starred Crystal), Palance's acceptance speech began with the joke "I crap bigger than he does (Crystal)" -- a reference to a similar line in the film. Palance also used some of his speech time to prove his virility by performing one-handed push-ups. In mock retaliation for Palance's comment, Crystal peppered the remainder of the telecast with jokes about Palance performing spectacular feats. As a result, Crystal won an Emmy for hosting the show, although he later (in the documentary Get Bruce) credited Bruce Vilanch for providing him many of the Palance jokes.

The Silence of the Lambs won the five major awards out of seven nominations, becoming only the third film to accomplish the feat of winning the "Top Five", after It Happened One Night (1934) and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975).

This year's ceremony made Academy Award History as Beauty and the Beast was nominated for Best Picture, the first time an Animated Feature Film was bestowed with such an honor. The Picture garnered a total of six nominations in four different categories, eventually collecting two awards for its Music (Best Original Score and Original Song, for "Beauty and the Beast").
