Before Ivory, Ennio Morricone was considered the oldest victor in a competitive category.
The Sony Classics film, by Italian Luca Guadagnino from a script by Ivory and based on the novel by Andrè Aciman, stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet as an unlikely duo who fall in love in the summer in 1983 in northern Italy.
"I'll make it as fast as I can", Ivory said in his acceptance speech, after setting his statuette on the ground. "Whether straight or gay or somewhere in between, we've all gone through first love and come out the other side in tact", Ivory said.

When James Ivory was born on June 7 1928, the first edition of the Academy Awards was still 11 months off.
He said, "I wouldn't be standing up here without the inspired help I received from my life's partners who are gone, our writer Ruth [Prawer] Jhabvala, who received this award twice, and our fearless producer Ismail Merchant".
Ivory, Merchant and Jhabvala also frequently collaborated with Bollywood superstar Shashi Kapoor.
The 89-year-old thanked Merchant, who died in 2005, in his speech, saying that Merchant had "led me to this award".
Call Me By Your Name also won the BAFTA for Best Adapted screenplay earlier this year.
