The 52nd Academy Awards were presented April 14, 1980 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Johnny Carson, who in noting the long duration of the production, joked that President Jimmy Carter was working ... (more)hard for their "release" from the ceremonies, a clear reference to the Iranian hostage crisis.
