A strange turn at the Oscars, Sound Editing goes to both Zero Dark Thirty & Skyfall!? ┬áStranger still this isn’t the first time a tie has happened at The Academy Awards. In 1969 Katherine Hepburn and Barbara Streisand also tied in the Best Actress category! ┬áThere have been other Oscar ties over the years, twice in the Best Documentary category (1949 and 1986) and once for Best Live Action Short Film (1986).
