, who provided the voice for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
(1937), was offended that the Disney didn't ask for her services to provide the voice for the character who was presenting the award for Best Live Action Short Subject, stating that "Uncle Walt never would have permitted this, to just let some girl do it". Further proof of Snow White's shaky association with the Academy came during the presentation of the award itself when the film of the animated character froze in mid-sentence before announcing the winner.

Tim Rice - Winner: Best Original Song
Thank you very much. I'd like to thank everybody in the Academy who voted for me, especially Alan. And I'd like to pay tribute to two great lyricists. One, of course, is Howard Ashman. I'm extremely lucky to be standing in his shoes. I know he'd be here today if he were still alive. And the other is the great Sammy Cahn, who is my inspiration for many years. And it's great to be working with Alan, and my thanks to everybody at Disney.
