For what did Joan Crawford win an Oscar? I don't remember that.

In case you're wondering, Joan didn't win an Oscar for Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (in fact, it was Bette who was nominated), she accepted on behalf of an absent Anne Bancroft.

And Ed won for Sweet Bird of Youth, not Wild in the Streets.

Whoa, Jim, you're fast on the button! I was writing the explanation the minute after I posted the image...

One of JC's dumber stunts. Bette was nominated, and Joan let her not inconsiderable ego get in the way. Had Bette won for Baby Jane, Joan would have probably made more money as she had a share in that film's profits.

Odd factoid - the date of this photograph - 08 APR 1963 - is also the birthday of John Lennon's son Julian Lennon.

Joan so hated Bette Davis that she volunteered to pick up the award for all the other actresses if they couldn't attend
