Paul O'Driscoll, a fan of Barbra Streisand, holds up a large poster of Streisand and the words "was robbed!" after her film "Yentl" was not nominated for major categories for the 56th Academy Awards. Streisand wrote, produced, directed and starred in the film, and her fans, who viewed the film as a major accomplishment, protested the Academy's minimal acknowledgment of it. The Awards ceremonies were held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on April 9, 1984.
