Trivia

Michael Caine, who won Best Supporting Actor for Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) was not present at the awards ceremony. He was in the Bahamas, due to filming commitments on Jaws: The Revenge (1987). As Caine explained to reporters who called him for comments on his Oscar win, "That stupid mechanical shark keeps breaking down, and we're all stuck here!" See more »

Quotes

Herself - Presenter: Best Original Score: Oh, my God, I got here! I cannot tell you what I have been through, getting ready for this star-studded event! I had my hair tortured by Emilio! I had by body pummeled by Ambrosia! I had my nails filed by Philippe! I have been worked over by more aliens than Sigourney Weaver! Oh, my God, but I *made* it! Now I know you're all on the edge of your seats, dying to know who I'm going to trash this evening. I hate to tell you this, but there is no trashing to be done in this category. These nominees...

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.
