Trivia

Of the 20 nominated actors, winners Paul Newman and Michael Caine, and Nominee Maggie Smith were not in attendance. The next time a winner was not present was for the 2008 Academy Awards. The winner was the late Heath Ledger, who won for Dark Knight, which also starred Michael Caine. See more »

Quotes

Paul Hogan: Now, I'm nominated tonight, and I realize I'm not exactly the odds-on favorite. But I traveled 13,000 miles to be here for this. I've come from the other side of the planet. And if they read out someone else's name instead of mine, it's not gonna be pretty.

So-so show! Much redeemed by Old Time Glamour & Star Power.
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Michael Caine and Paul Newman were no-shows, Dianne Wiest & Marlee Matlin were touching but they won everything also so their Oscar moment was anti-climatic.

I agree the highlight was a prickly Bette Davis putting a befuddled Robert Wise in his place. It was Bette's final Oscar appearance. The introductions to the greats by showing clips of their great films and then having them walk out was wonderful. Anthony Quinn, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Gregory Peck, Olivia DeHavilland, and a very jittery Jennifer Jones making her first Oscar appearance as a presenter in decades (it would also be her last as a presenter, though she had appeared twice with the past winners on the 70th & 75th).

Another great moment: Co-host Goldie Hawn's surprise reaction when old friend Lee Grant takes the stage to receive an award for Best Documentary Feature.
