- One of the requirements to be nominated for an Oscar is that it has to be screened in an LA theater for at least 7 days. This was actually enforced when Charlie Chaplin's Limelight failed to be screened in LA when it came out in 1952. In 1973 the film was finally shown in the city, and it WON an Oscar for Best Original Score.
