Himself - Winner: Best Film Editing: This is unbelievable. Thank you, members of the Academy, for honoring "Black Hawk Down" and my fellow editors and nominees tonight. This is one of the rare moments where we as editors get to share a corner of the limelight with the stars and editors - and directors, I'm sorry - and it feels great. Editors are like alchemists; we play with magic and we are privileged to witness small miracles of creation when we combine the talents and contributions from everyone involved in the process of ...

The Shadow Of 9/11 Hangs Over It
6 February 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

The events of the 11th of September 2001 cast its shadow on this Oscar award ceremony with a one minute silence before the in memoriam montage and there was little in the way of the all singing all dancing comedy extravaganza that we`d come to expect of this award show but this was by no means a bad thing . Entertainment was more or less curtailed to a LOTR send up with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson and that was it . The rest of the show was taken up with clips from the nominations and I have to admit this was actually more enjoyable than the overblown song and dance numbers we`ve seen over the years and Whoopi Goldberg was by no means a bad presenter unlike the very esoteric David Letterman from a few years ago and the one minute silence for the victims of 9/11 was haunting and dignified

As for the awards New Zealand was absolutely robbed . FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING went home with four minor awards while A BEAUTIFUL MIND undeservingly picked up most of the major prizes except for best actor which should have gone to a tough guy New Zealander but went to an An all American nice guy instead . The only Oscar awards I agreed with apart from the ones presented to FELLOWSHIP were the awards for best supporting actress and best supporting actor , both correct calls .
