Skyfall and Zero Dark Thirty tied for the Academy Award in Best Sound Editing. This was only the sixth tie vote in the history of the Academy that resulted in two awards being presented. The Oscars were presented to both Per Hallberg for Skyfall and Karen Baker Landers and Paul N. J. Ottosson for Zero Dark Thirty.

The other ties were for the 1968 Best Actress Award, which went to both Katherine Hepburn in The Lion In Winter and Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl, the 1931 Best Actor Award, when Oscars were awarded to both Fredric March in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Wallace Beery in The Champ, and the Best Live-Action Short Award in 1994 between Franz Kafka’s It’s A Wonderful Life and Trevor.

The 85th Academy Awards are notable for several rare and first-time feats. Argo became the first Best Picture winner in 23 years not to have a Best Director nomination. Amour (French) became the first film in twelve years to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Foreign Language Film; the last film to do so was Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Mandarin) in 2000. Amour also became the first foreign-language film in six years to earn a Best Picture nomination; the last film to do so was Letters from Iwo Jima (Japanese) in 2006.

Several age-related records were set: Emmanuelle Riva, at 85, became the oldest nominee in the Best Actress category. This record was previously held by Jessica Tandy, age 80, who was nominated (and won) for Driving Miss Daisy in 1989. Quvenzhané Wallis, at age 9, became the youngest nominated actress in the Best Actress category. This record was previously held by Keisha Castle-Hughes who was nominated at the age of 13 for Whale Rider in 2003. Jennifer Lawrence, at 22, became the youngest Best Actress two-time nominee, having previously been nominated in 2010 for Winter’s Bone.

Silver Linings Playbook became the first film in 31 years to receive nominations in all four acting categories; the last film to do so was Reds in 1981. Silver Linings Playbook also became the first film in eight years to be nominated in the “Big Five” categories; the last film to do so was Million Dollar Baby in 2004.
