The 58th Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 1985, were held on March 24, 1986 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. They were hosted by Alan Alda, Jane Fonda and Robin Williams. The ceremony was watched by 38.93 million viewers, tying the 78th Academy Awards as the third-lowest rated telecast since 1966.[1] The 80th Academy Awards still holds the distinction of the least watched ceremony, with 31.76 million viewers. For the first time since 1948, film clips were used to promote all acting nominated categories.

Anjelica Huston's Best Supporting Actress win for Prizzi's Honor, directed by her father John Huston, made her family the first to win Oscars across three generations: John Huston had won Best Director for 1948's The Treasure of Sierra Madre, and his father, Walter Huston, won Best Supporting Actor for the same film.
