OTD March 25 - Audrey Hepburn
28 / 51
Paramount Pictures

1954: Actress Audrey Hepburn wins the only Academy Award of her career in just her first nomination. Hepburn won Best Actress for "Roman Holiday" (pictured with co-star Gregory Peck) and would receive four more nominations in her career without winning again. That same ceremony saw William Holden win the only Oscar of his career, for "Stalag 17," and the movie "From Here to Eternity" dominate the awards, winning eight Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director and supporting wins for Frank Sinatra and Donna Reed.
