Grace Kelly in 1955 at the Governors Ball after winning her only Oscar: Best Actress for her role in “The Country Girl.” Her acceptance speech was very brief. “The thrill of this moment keeps me from saying what I really feel. I can only say thank you with all my heart to all who made this possible for me. Thank you.”

Leland Stanford wanted to understand how horses run, so he enlisted Eadweard Muybridge to capture his own horses in motion. Muybridge’s photos, which are housed in the Academy’s collection, became precursors for cinema. #MuseumMonday

Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett were each nominated for their performances in "Carol" (2015). Mara said that she was well-prepared for her role thanks to director Todd Haynes: "He had done so much research that he shared with Cate and me. He made this book full of references of how he wanted the movie to look and feel—all these photographs from that era that inspired him. And he sent, like, five different mix CDs—like, not even playlists, but actual CDs—with all the songs that inspired him for the film. He gave me a bunch of movies to watch. So I kind of knew before I got there what kind of movie I was going to be in."
