Trivia

To mark the occasion of Oscar's 70th birthday, the show featured a segment called "Oscar's Family Album" in which the academy invited every living actor who had ever won an Oscar in the four acting categories, honorary recipients and some who had received the now defunct juvenile acting award. They were seated on riser benches and the camera went from actor to actor and announced their name and the film for which they had received an Oscar. Of the 134 recipients who were still living, 70 attended. Marlon Brando and George C. Scott who had both refused their Oscars years earlier were not invited. Due to a clerical error the invitation sent to Dorothy Malone did not arrive, an oversight which is said to have angered her. See more »

Quotes

Himself - Winner: Best Dramatic Score & Best Original Song: Oh my dear God. I'm sort of speechless. One wants this to happen, of course, but I've been so close quite a few times but never actually won. I've got to get my wits about me. I don't write speeches because I'm always so superstitious. I want to thank my wife, my family for all of their support and nourishment. Jim, thank you so much for the chance to do it. And the musicians who I know so well, and so many other people but I have so little time. I want to thank Michael Gorfaine, Jim Henrikson,...

My favorite Academy Awards show.
8 November 2003 | by (Lake Isabella, CA) – See all my reviews

This has always been my favorite Academy Awards show, the 70th show, and 70 years of Oscars. Hosted by Billy Crystal, James Cameron won the Best Director for the multi billion dollar motion picture Titanic which also won 10 additional Oscars, Kim Basinger won the Best Supporting Actress for her seductive role in LA Confeditial and Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt won the leading Best Actor and Best Actress awards for As Good as it Gets. Robin Williams also gave a wonderful performance and won the Best Supporting Actor award for Good Will Hunting. Newcomers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon won their Best Screenplay for Good Will Hunting, while Celin Dion sang her heart out for Titanic's song "My Heart Will Go On". Veteran director Stanley Donen took the Honary Award and then there was a sad memorial for the great actors who died in 1997 and 1998 among them included Robert Mitchum, Lloyd Bridges, Burgess Meredith, Toshiro Mifune, Brian Keith, William Hickey, Richard Jaeckel, J.T. Walsh, Will Hare, Billie Dove and James Stewart. A great show.
