Macaulay Culkin opens the 17th Annual People's Choice Awards

The 17th Academy Awards marked the first time the complete awards ceremony was broadcast nationally, on the Blue Network. Bob Hope hosted the 70-minute broadcast, which included film clips that required explanation for the radio audience. This tradition ended abruptly after the 1948 ceremony as a result of the Paramount antitrust decrees, only to return gradually since the late 1960s.
