March '12 Update: Omar Sharif Jr, in the news after publicly coming out as a gay (Canadian-born, internationally raised) Egyptian man whose mother happens to be Jewish, is seen above with veteran Kirk Douglas while presenting the Best Supporting Actress Oscar to The Fighter's Melissa Leo at the 2011 Academy Awards. The ceremony was held at the back then still known as Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland on Feb. 27. (Image: Michael Yada / © A.M.P.A.S.)

Melissa Leo went on to make Oscar history: she is the first person to (audibly) use the word "fuck" – in any form – while onstage at an Oscar show. At least Leo's is the first expletive that has gone on record.

Kirk Douglas never made a movie with Sharif Jr.'s grandfather, Omar Sharif, but he did get three Best Actor nominations: for playing a boxer in Mark Robson's Champion (1949), a movie producer in Vincente Minnelli's The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), and Vincent Van Gogh in Minnelli's Lust for Life (1956).
