There doesn't seem to be a question up now, so until one of the winning commitee steps forward;
...What Native American is best known for an acceptance speech, for the Best Actor, award?

Do you mean Sacheen Littlefeather who accepted the award for Brando, who sent her up there to protest the treatment of Native Americans? I think that was the year of the Godfather, 1972? Except she was actually an actress and I don't think her real name was Sacheen Littlefeather and I'm not sure if she was even Native American or not.

Barbra Streisand (FunnyGirl) and Katherine Hepburn (The Lion in Winter). Actually, that's the only tie I know of. 1969 I think.

Right Tim. I think there was a tie in the thirties or forties, but it may have been in a "lesser" category. I'll see if I can find it.

That would be Marlee Matlin for Children of a Lesser God in 1986 when she was just 21.

Tatum O'Neal was only 10 when she won her Oscar in 1973 for her performance in Paper Moon, however that was for Best supporting actress

Re: the earlier "tie" that I was thinking of, 36 years before Hepburn and Streisand:

Reel.com

"In 1932, the fifth year of the Award, there were three nominees for Best Actor: Wallace Beery (The Champ), Alfred Lunt (The Guardsman), and Fredric March (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). When the ballots were counted, March was the winner, with Beery a mere one vote behind. The rules of the Academy, in a provision that seems positively Floridian, declared a tie whenever the margin of victory was three votes or less, so Beery and March each got to take home a statuette. No one was much perturbed, nor were there any calls to take the matter to the Supreme Court, though Lunt, the Ralph Nader of the affair, probably wasn't feeling on top of the world. The second tie in Academy Award history, incidentally, occurred in 1968 when Katharine Hepburn (The Lion in Winter) and Barbara Streisand (Funny Girl shared the Best Actress prize. By then the Academy had changed its rules on ties and had stopped releasing vote tallies, so it is not known how many votes Streisand actually lost by. (Just kidding, Babs.)"

Thanks Larry, that's very interesting.

Another question :-

Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench have both been nominated for Oscars for playing the same character-Elizabeth ?

Which other 2 actresses have been nominated for doing the same?

And which 2 actors both won Oscars in the '70s for playing the same character?

By "the same" do you mean two other actresses who have played Elizabeth or merely the same character as each other?
