Trivia

Eighteen days before the awards ceremony, 55 Oscar statuettes en route from Chicago to the Academy were stolen from a Roadway Express shipping dock in Bell, California. A week and a half later, a scrap metal dealer, Willie Fulgear, found 52 of the statuettes in a Dumpster behind a grocery store. (In the meantime, the Academy had had replacement statuettes made.) For finding the awards, Mr. Fulgear received two tickets to the Academy Awards show, where he was praised by host Billy Crystal, and a $50,000 check from the shipping company. A few months later, $40,000 of his reward was stolen from a safe in his apartment. See more »

Quotes

Himself - Winner: Best Sound Editing: Wow. So this is where the rabbit hole goes. I want to thank Larry and Andy Wachowski and Joel Silver, Zach Staenberg, and everybody at Warner Bros. for trusting me with such a terrific movie. It was a blast from start to finish. I want to thank our mixers, John, Gregg and Dave, and congratulations. I want to thank my terrific crew led by Julia Evershade, Eric Lindemann, and John Roesch. I thank my mother and father, my wife Francine, my sons Jeremy and Ryan for being there for me when I came ...

the entry to the new millennium
7 March 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

After Roberto Benigni's acceptance speech the previous year, "The 72 Annual Academy Awards" would be hard-pressed to equal it. Still, I liked that the first Oscar ceremony of the 21st century (assuming that we start the 21st century in the year 2000) gave "American Beauty" Best Picture. Like "The Graduate" in 1967 - when, incidentally, my parents were as old as I was in 1999 - it presented a totally new approach to how cinema looks at things. Other such movies in 1999 were "Election", "The Blair Witch Project", "The Sixth Sense" and "Being John Malkovich".

As for the rest of the program, I thought that the most interesting part was the look back at the 20th century (I remember that it included a scene from "Yellow Submarine"). And Hilary Swank's win for "Boys Don't Cry" was also well-deserved (Hilary Swank and Annette Bening were both nominated again five years later, and Swank won again).

Overall, a worthy ceremony.
