Upon winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Places in the Heart, Sally Field exclaimed, "The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!" (often misquoted as "you really like me!")
The big winner at the ceremony was Milos Forman's Amadeus, which had received 11 nominations and won 8 awards including Best Picture and Best actor for F.Murray Abraham. As of the 87th Academy Awards, Amadeus is the most recent film to receive two lead actor nominations.
The winner of Best Supporting Actor was also significant. Haing S. Ngor, a Cambodian surgeon who survived the horrors of the Khmer Rouge, won the award for his performance as Dith Pran in Roland Joffé's The Killing Fields, despite having no previous acting experience. Ngor and Harold Russell are the only two non-professional actors to win Academy Awards for acting.
This ceremony marks the first time that multiple black nominees would win an Oscar, when Prince and Stevie Wonder won for their respective work on Purple Rain and The Woman in Red. Additionally, it was the first and only time that all five nominated songs topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Winners are listed first and highlighted in boldface.
