The 2013 Oscars saw an incredibly rare occurrence, a dramatic tied category… for Best Sound Editing.

Presenter Mark Wahlberg on stage with CGI Ted co-star – Ted – (don’t ask), announced the surprise split decision on stage. “No BS”, he said.

Per Hallberg and Karen Baker Landers for ‘Skyfall’ and Paul N. J. Ottosson for ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ took to the stage to collect the awards.

Suffice to say, it’s very rare for two nominees to collect exactly the same number of votes from the Academy members. The most famous time it did happen was when Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn tied in the Best Actress category in 1969 (for ‘Funny Girl’ and ‘Lion In Winter’, respectfully).

It also happened in 1932, when Wallace Beery and Frederic March both won Best Actor, for ‘The Champ’ and ‘Dr. Jeckell And Mr. Hyde’. They differed by one vote, apparently.
'A Chance To Live' and 'So Much For So Little' both won the Best Documentary Short award in 1949.

In 1986, 'Artie Shaw: Time Is All You've Got' and 'Down And Out In America' both won for Best Documentary.

'Franz Kafka's It's A Wonderful Life' and 'Trevor' both won the Best Short Film (live action) prize.
