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.
