The 9th Academy Awards were held on March 4, 1937, at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California.[1] They were hosted by George Jessel. This ceremony marked the first time in which the categories of Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress were awarded.

My Man Godfrey became the first film to receive nominations in all four acting categories, but did not win in any category. It is the only such film to not receive a nomination for Best Picture, and was the only one to lose all of its nominations until Sunset Boulevard at the 23rd Academy Awards.

With a win for Best Sound Recording for San Francisco, Douglas Shearer became the first person to win consecutive Academy Awards (following a win in the same category for Naughty Marietta the year before).
