Another one of the rarities, is that there has been six tie-votes in academy awards history so far. In 1932, the votes showed that Frederic March came in one vote ahead of Wallace Beery. According to the rules of that time, this counted as a tie. After that, the rules have changed to that a tie vote can only occur if 2 or more films get the EXACT same amount of votes. The ceremonies on this page reveal the years that those ties occurred.
