Description:
The 66th Academy Awards were presented March 21, 1994, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The show was landmark in that it featured a female African American host for the first time, Whoopi Goldberg, and represented a direct contrast in edgy style from Billy Crystal who had hosted the show the previous four years.

Schindler's List dominated the evening winning seven Oscars out of its 12 nominations, including Best Picture.

Another big winner was The Piano, which received eight nominations and won three awards. Anna Paquin's win, at age 11, made her the second youngest competitive winner in Oscar history, the youngest being Tatum O'Neal, who won the award at age 10.

Jane Campion became only the second woman in history to be nominated for Best Director. Although she did not win, she received the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Kathryn Bigelow would later become the first female to win the Best Director prize in 2010.

Schindler's List became the first black and white film to win best picture in 33 years, the last one being The Apartment. And to date as of 2011 is the last to win.
