Trivia

"Against All Odds" won Phil Collins the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1985, and it was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Collins was the only nominee in the category not invited to sing his song on stage, and sat in the audience as Ann Reinking performed it. His perceived negative reaction shown on the telecast is considered to be one of the most awkward moments in the history of the ceremony, and has been a favorite reference for Dennis Miller to relate someone reacting in a horrified fashion.

Quotes

[Accepting the Best Actress award, her second]
Sally Field: But I want to say thank you to you. I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it. But this time I feel it! And I can't deny the fact that you LIKE me! Right now, you LIKE me! Thank you!
