Not sure if this was a shock as such, as I wasn't old enough to appreciate the reaction at the time, but seeing that Midnight Cowboy won the Oscar for best film in the late sixties, being the first X-rated film to win, then maybe that has some claim to being the biggest shock in Oscar history. Maybe as the "times were a changing", something like this would have come about, but I can imagine some of the people at the time would have been a bit "shocked" and thinking that the world was going to implode.
