by

In the weeks leading up to the 90th Oscars on Sunday, March 4, we’ll take a look at our rich Academy Award history by sharing from our 20th Century Fox Archives.

This year for the 90th Academy Awards, Octavia Spencer is nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Fox Searchlight’s “The Shape of Water.” Previously, Octavia was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for 20th Century Fox’s 2017 film “Hidden Figures” at the 89th Academy Awards.

At the 65th Academy Awards ceremony held on March 29, 1993, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, Marisa Tomei won for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in “My Cousin Vinny” (produced and distributed by 20th Century Fox) playing Mona Lisa Vito. She was also nominated in 2008 at the 81st Academy Awards for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Fox Searchlight’s “The Wrestler.”

Below are select images from our Photography collection for “My Cousin Vinny.”

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
