When Marisa Tomei beat out Vanessa Redgrave, Judy Davis, Miranda Richardson and Joan Plowright for the 1992 Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance in "My Cousin Vinny," tongues wagged that perhaps the wrong name had been announced during the ceremony. The theory was that actor Jack Palance, who was presenting the award, read the name at the top of the nomination list rather than the winner. "That was very hurtful for me," Marisa said later. "I was a young actress and it was really exciting, but there was a cloud over it." Still, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences refused to address the issue -- despite Marisa's requests. "I asked the Academy to clear it up, but they just said it would be giving it more credence than if we ignored it," she said.
