The Academy Awards made history Sunday night.

For only the sixth time since the inaugural 1929 ceremony, the Oscars crowned two victors in a single category. In announcing the award for Best Sound Editing, Mark Wahlberg tore open the winner envelope and dumbfoundedly declared, “We have a tie. No B.S. We have a tie.”

That means two coveted statuettes were handed out, one to Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow’s Osama bin Laden hunt-down film, and the other to Skyfall, the Sam Mendes-helmed latest installment in the illustrative James Bond franchise.

The crowned Oscar champs edged out Argo, Django Unchained, and Life of Pi for the win.

The momentous moment comes over four decades since the last tie at the Academy Awards. Back in 1969, two leading ladies snagged a Best Actress win — Katharine Hepburn, for her turn as Eleanor of Aquitaine in The Lion in Winter, and Barbra Streisand, for her debut performance in Funny Girl.

The draw was the first in a major acting category in over than three decades, following Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’s Fredric March and The Champ’s Wallace Beery splitting the Best Actor victory back in 1932.
