Chaplin won two special Oscars . Chaplin had first been chosen for both "Best Actor" and "Best Comedy Directing". But then, instead, he was given a special award "for versatility and genius in acting, writing, directing and producing". Chaplin's second special award came 44 years later, in 1972 . When getting this award, Chaplin had the longest standing ovation (people standing up and clapping) in Academy Award history.  In 1976 he was given the BAFTA Academy Fellowship Award , a lifetime achievement award. Chaplin became the first actor to have appeared in the cover of Time in 1925.
