Trivia

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 »

An uneventful presentation of the Oscars.
7 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall, the 69th Annual Academy Awards was not exciting. Although the beginning clip that Billy Crystal and his writers created with his presence in all five movies nominated for Best Picture was hilarious! Something that wasn't done before and the cameo with David Letterman made it a classical moment in Oscar history. With his hiatus from hosting the Oscars since the 65th Annual Academy Awards and the opening clip to welcome him back, delivered a very well earned standing ovation to his return to the Oscars. Let's not forget the memorable moment of Cuba Gooding Jr's acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor. Instead of letting the music cut him short of his acceptance speech, he continued on & on by thanking everyone he could possible think of at the moment. He yelled as loud as he could with his arms raised in the air and jumping up for joy to end his speech. A very heartwarming and sincere moment that you wish every acceptance speech was like at the Oscars. After the first half-an-hour, well; the rest of the Academy Award was pretty uneventful.
