Quotes

Janusz Kaminski - Winner: Best Cinematography: Thank you very much. Behind the hand-held camera there are people, and that's Mitch Dubin, Seamus and Chris Haarhoff. And I want to thank you very much. I want to thank the producers; of course the actors; Steven, the great collaborator; my sugar bear Holly.

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.
