On March 19, 1953, legendary filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille wins the only Academy Award of his career when The Greatest Show on Earth takes home an Oscar for Best Picture. The film, a big-budget extravaganza about circus life, starred Charlton Heston, Betty Hutton, and Cornel Wilde.

Although rarely critically acclaimed, his spectacles attracted vast audiences, and he was a dominant figure in Hollywood for decades. His only Oscar was for The Greatest Show on Earth, but that year he also received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In 1950, he had received a special Academy Award for "37 years of brilliant showmanship." In 1952, the Golden Globe Awards introduced the Cecil B. DeMille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment. The first Cecil B. DeMille Award went, appropriately, to Cecil B. DeMille. He died in 1959.
