The 48th Academy Awards were presented March 29, 1976 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Los Angeles. The ceremonies were presided over by Walter Matthau, Robert Shaw, George Segal, Goldie Hawn, and Gene Kelly. This year, ABC took over broadcast rights from NBC, which they still hold today.

The most successful film of the ceremony was Miloš Forman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, which became the first film since It Happened One Night to perform a "clean sweep" of the top categories; that is, winning Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay.
