It's A Tie! Academy Hands Out Two Oscars In Sound Editing
'Zero Dark Thirty' and 'Skyfall' both snag statuette in jaw-dropping moment.
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.
