Did You Know?


A great deal of controversy surrounded the awarding of an honorary Oscar to Elia Kazan, as there remained much lingering resentment stemming from his testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee 47 years earlier. In addition to a handful of protesters outside the theater, many members of the audience remained seated when he received his award and refused to even applaud. See more »


Richard Hymns - Winner: Best Sound Editing: This is a great film. It was a wonderful opportunity for sound and we took it. It is our benchmark.
Gary Rydstrom - Winner: Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing: Thank you most of all to Steven Spielberg. I can't think of a greater compliment for a director than you inspire people to do their best work. And that was certainly true of the people up at Skywalker Sound.
Richard Hymns - Winner: Best Sound Editing: Especially the amazing sound effects editors: Ethan Van Der Ryn, Terry Eckton, Frank Eulner, Karen Wilson, Larry Oatfield, and my fabulous assistants Lisa Chino and André Fenley.

the one big mistake committed by the Academy this year was giving Best Picture to "Shakespeare in Love". "Saving Private Ryan" was by far the more deserving film. I'm happy that Spielberg won the Oscar for Best Director for this film. I was also happy seeing Roberto Benigni win for Best Actor since I'm italian. I think there were some really good movies nominated this year, certainly better than in 2001 and this year, 2002. But I still believe "Shakespeare in Love" is a most overrated movie.
