    Been a while since I’ve posted here! Mostly been watching from the sidelines but I’m emerging from the shadows.

    With the possibility of Ennio Morricone winning Best Score this year – which would almost certainly ensure a standing ovation – can anybody find some other examples of categories outside of the circle of picture/director/acting/writing, the “below the line” categories, that have produced standing ovations?

    I know that Randy Newman received one for Best Original Song in 2001 and Al Gore (while he technically didn’t win) drummed one up for An Inconvenient Truth in 2007.

    “Glory” received one when it won Original Song last year.

    Michael Moore pulled off the rare feat of getting a standing ovation, then booed.

    Bruce Springsteen received a standing ovation for winning 1993 Best Song for Streets of Philadelphia.

    The audience leapt to its feet for the 1995 Best Documentary when Anne Frank Remembered filmmaker Jon Blair introduced Miep Gies who had protected the Frank family in hiding and preserved the famed diary after the Nazis raided the attic hideaway.

    Nothing is more moving than the five minute standing ovation for honorary Oscar winner Charlie Chaplin in 1971 when the legendary filmmaker ended a self-imposed 20 year exile and returned to Hollywood.

    Musicians are a little more popular than cinematographers, so they’re more likely to be recognized by standing o’s. A striking example if Randy Newman, although his (for Monster’s Inc.) was only after it was announced how many nominations he had unsuccessfully received.

    Also the most annoying thing I’ve ever seen on an Oscar telecast in my life. Including the selfie.
