The 45th Academy Awards were presented March 27, 1973 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilionmarker, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Carol Burnett, Michael Caine, Charlton Heston, and Rock Hudson.

The ceremony was marked by Marlon Brando's boycott of the Oscars and his sending of Sacheen Littlefeather to explain why he would not show up to collect his Best Actor award for The Godfather, and by Charles Chaplin's first competitive Oscar win for Best Original Score for his 20-year-old film Limelight, which was eligible due to a technicality. Chaplin had received an honorary Oscar the previous year.

Cabaret, Bob Fosse's revival of the Broadwaymarker stage musical, set a record for the most Oscars won without winning Best Picture. Although it is now recognized as one of the most acclaimed and beloved films of all time, The Godfather only received three Academy Awards.
