Host Billy Crystal asked Kevin Spacey to present the Best Supporting Actress Award using the voice of Christopher Walken; Spacey proceeded to speak for a minute or two in his well-noted perfect imitation of Walken before giving the award (in his own voice). See more »
What am I doing here? Especially considering the extraordinary group of women with whom I was nominated.

OK, so Billy Crystal is little more than a joke machine when hosting the Oscars, but he does tell some good ones. But I can't understand why the Oscars gave Best Picture to "The English Patient" (which I found uninspired when I saw it) when there were "Shine" and "Secrets and Lies".
But otherwise, I enjoyed "The 69th Annual Academy Awards", especially when David Helfgott played the piano, and when Muhammad Ali came up on the stage (it would have been neat to have Larry Flynt on the stage).
So, it was an OK ceremony. But it seems like this one paved the way for them to over-award "Titanic".
