If We Were Members of the Academy: 2014 Edition, Part 4
Replying to: C. Chan
I stand corrected, C. Chan is correct. Wallace Beery and Fedric March did tie for the 1931/1932 best actor Oscar. However, March won the popular vote by one vote. At that time in the Academy's history, a tie was declared in a category if the vote came within three, a rule that changed sometime in the 1940s.
