Billy Crystal's entrance was planned to have him bungee-jump from the rafters, but safety concerns quickly killed that idea. Instead, Crystal made his entrance on a dolly, wearing Hannibal Lecter's mask from The Silence of the Lambs (1991). It would turn out to be one of his best remembered entrances. See more »

This is the year of "Silence of the Lambs", and by winning Best Picture, pulled an upset over "The Prince of Tides" and "Bugsy". I was happy with "Silence" winning, but secretly was hoping for "Beauty and the Beast" to win!! Also, it was thrilling to see Anthony Hopkins win over Warren Beatty (whoever said this guy could act????) and Nick Nolte. I also remember Barbra Streisand's awful hair that year. Crimped!! And at her age!! LOL.
