1982: At the 54th Academy Awards, Henry Fonda wins the only competitive Oscar of his career, winning Best Actor for "On Golden Pond." At 76 years old, Fonda became the oldest winner in the Best Actor category in Academy history. The only other nomination he received in his career was Best Actor for his performance in "The Grapes of Wrath" 41 years earlier -- a record gap between acting nominations. His co-star, Katharine Hepburn, won her fourth Best Actress award at the ceremony, beating her own record for most Best Actress wins by any actress. While "On Golden Pond" was also nominated for Best Picture, it lost out to "Chariots of Fire."
