Oregon wins the first NCAA men's basketball tourney, the Good Friday Earthquake rips up Alaska, Brando boycotts the Oscars, and Viagra gets FDA approval, all on this day.
1995: At the 67th Academy Awards, "Forrest Gump" wins Best Picture, as well as an additional five Oscars, including star Tom Hanks' second consecutive win for Best Actor. Hanks, who had won the year before for his performance in "Philadelphia," became only the second person in Oscar history to accomplish the feat of winning back-to-back awards in the Best Actor category, the first being Spencer Tracy in 1938-39 for "Captains Courageous" and "Boys Town."
