The 33rd Academy Awards, honoring the best in film for 1960, were held on April 17, 1961, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in Santa Monica, California. They were hosted by Bob Hope. This was the first ceremony to be aired on ABC television, which has aired the Academy Awards ever since (save for the period between 1971 and 1975, when they were aired on NBC for the first time since the previous year.)

The Apartment was the last black-and-white film to win Best Picture until Schindler's List (1993).

Gary Cooper was selected by the Academy Board of Governors to be the year's recipient of the Academy Honorary Award "for his many memorable screen performances and the international recognition he, as an individual, has gained for the motion picture industry." Cooper was too ill to attend the ceremony, though his condition was not publicly disclosed, save for his family and close friends. At the awards ceremony James Stewart, a close friend of Cooper, accepted the Honorary Oscar on his behalf. Stewart's emotional speech hinted that something was seriously wrong, and the next day newspapers ran the headline, "Gary Cooper has cancer." Less than four weeks later, on May 13, 1961, six days after his 60th birthday, Cooper died.

Young and rising star Hayley Mills was selected by the Academy Board of Governors to be the year's recipient of the Academy Juvenile Award for her breakthrough and acclaimed performance in Walt Disney's production of Pollyanna. Mills became the last recipient of the award, as the Academy retired the award afterwards. From 1963 onward, juvenile actors could officially compete in competitive acting awards with their adult counterparts. This was the first year a red carpet would line the walk into the theater. [1]
