What's in the box?

What's in the box? Throughout ABC's red carpet pre-show, Kristin Chenoweth quizzed attendees about the mystery contents of a covered box that contained "a piece of Oscar history." Oscar attendees have a lot of things on their minds that night, but guessing the contents of a box on live TV is not one of them. Nor one that anyone wanted to spend much time contemplating. (Strangely, it was eventual lead actress winner Anne Hathaway who guessed it correctly: the ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz.")
