The 42nd Academy Awards were presented April 7, 1970 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. There was no host.

This is currently the highest rated of the televised Academy Awards ceremonies, according to Nielsen ratings.

Midnight Cowboy became the first - and so far, the only - X-rated film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The previous year had seen the only G-rated film to win Best Picture: Oliver!.
