The 42nd Academy Awards were presented April 7, 1970, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. This was the first Academy Awards ceremony to be broadcast via satellite to an international audience, but only outside North America.
A report by the Law Reform Commission in September recommended tough new laws to deal with online harassment, including the non-consensual uploading of images and manipulated images.
When word got back to the organisers of Miss Great Britain, she was stripped of her title and the drama made headlines everywhere.
A bunch of other reality stars including Olivia Buckland, Hannah Elizabeth, Jon Clark, Terry Walsh and Emma-Jane Woodham have also had sex on the show.
This was the first Academy Award ceremony intended to be broadcast via satellite worldwide, but according to Klaus Lehmann, a foreign sales executive of the ABC television network, in addition to Canada and Mexico (broadcasting the event since 1953, but only live since 1964), only two South American countries, Chile and Brazil, roughly in the Oscars' time zone, were interested in the live coverage.
The Chilean television rights to the Oscars were sold by ABC International to Televisión Nacional de Chile while the Brazilian rights were sold to TV Tupi.
