Trivia

As an incentive to keep the show's running time short, a television was offered to whoever gave the shortest acceptance speech. The prize went to Michael Dudok de Wit, who won, interestingly enough, for Best Animated Short. See more »

Quotes

Janty Yates: Thank you, Academy. Thank you, DreamWorks. Thank you, Walter Parkes, Branko Lustig, Terry Needham. A huge thank you to Ridley Scott for his vision and his incredible inspiration. But this doesn't belong to me alone. It belongs to a huge costume crew who worked so hard in Malta and Morocco and in the U.K. It belongs to the armour makers. It belongs to the costume makers. To the jewelry, footwear creators and the costume breakers. I couldn't have done it without these people: without Vanessa ...

crouching and hidden
13 January 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Steve Martin is certainly one of the Oscar hosts whom I like most. His comment about "Dude, Where's My Car?" here was a big enough laugh in and of itself. Most of the evening was actually a little bit predictable, and I thought that Ed Harris did a better job in "Pollock" than Russell Crowe did in "Gladiator". Listening to Julia Roberts's acceptance speech, it was clear that she was more full of herself than the people doing costume design and stuff like that. But I do think that "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" - remember Steve Martin's comment about the title characters - deserved its win. As for Bjork's dress, I now like the fact that it provided Jon Stewart with a joke when he hosted the Oscars a few years later.

Looking back on "The 73rd Annual Academy Awards", some things are a little surprising. This was the last Oscars ceremony before September 11, 2001. Did that make this ceremony a sign of things to come? I don't know, and maybe I'm the only person who even identified that. But mostly I liked the ceremony.
