Alfred Nobel establishes the Nobel Prize, Baby Face Nelson dies in a shootout with the FBI, Harvey Milk is assassinated, MTV bans Madonna, and Tiger Woods crashes his SUV, all on this day.
1976: The drama "Network," starring Faye Dunaway, William Holden, Peter Finch (pictured) and Robert Duvall, and directed by Sidney Lumet, premieres in New York City. The movie would go on to win four Academy Awards, in the categories of Best Actor (Finch), Best Actress (Dunaway), Best Supporting Actress (Beatrice Straight), and Best Original Screenplay. Finch, who died before the 1977 Academy Awards, would become the only performer to win a posthumous Oscar until Heath Ledger won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2009.
