Will Rogers learns to always use last names (1934)
When he was presenting the award for Best Director at the 6th Academy Awards, Will Rogers opened the envelope and said, "Come up and get it, Frank!" Cue Lady for a Day director Frank Capra jumping up out of his seat and making his way to the stage. But the actual winner was Frank Lloyd, who directed Cavalcade. Talk about awkward.
