5. The Sixth Oscars Tie
For only the sixth time in the Academy Awards’ 85-year history, there was a tie for the Oscar. Both “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Skyfall” took home the trophy for Best Sound Editing. There were also tied categories in 1931, 1949, 1986 and 1994, but the most famous co-winners were Barbra Streisand and Katherine Hepburn, who both earned a Best Actress award in 1968 for “Funny Girl” and “The Lion in Winter,” respectively. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photos: Kevin Winter/Getty Images)
