(Oscar statuette). A great deal of controversy surrounded the presentation of this award to Elia Kazan, as there was still lingering resentment over his appearances before the House of Un-American Activities Committee 47 years earlier. In addition to a handful of protesters outside the theater, many attendees remained seated when he received his award, even refusing to applaud. The executive council of the Eastern unit of the Writers Guild of America voted to protest against the Academy's decision to present an honorary Oscar to Elia Kazan, accusing Kazan of causing irrevocable harm to the lives and careers of several professional colleagues by informing the House of Un-American Activities Committee that they had once belonged to the Communist Party."
