Trivia

Eddie Murphy was so distressed over losing Best Actor in a Supporting Role to Alan Arkin that he left after the award was announced and did not return to the ceremony. As a result he did not see his Dreamgirls (2006) co-star, Jennifer Hudson win Best Actress in a Supporting Role. See more »

Goofs

At one point, Jack Black refers to Peter O'Toole as "English." While O'Toole speaks with an English accent, he is actually Irish. See more »

Quotes

Himself - Winner: Best Sound Editing: Well, first of all I'd like to thank the Academy, our distinguished director Clint Eastwood, producers Steven Spielberg, Paul Haggis and Rob Lorenz. The incredible support from everyone in the Malpaso family, Warner Bros. and DreamWorks. Support from the United States Marine Corps. To our wives and children for their continued support and understanding. Our exceptional picture and sound editors on "Letters," and the mix team of Gregg Rudloff, John Reitz and Dave Campbell. And finally, thank you...

Unmemorable

Perhaps I am bit a bit biased considering I have never found host Ellen DeGeneres all that funny and that none of the five films nominated for Best Picture (The Departed, Babel, Letters from Iwo Jima, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Queen) blew me away, but for whatever reason, the Academy Awards this year were, well, pretty terrible. While I have always loved watching the Academy Awards, there are very few times where I have actually found them memorable, or at least worthy of the hype. This year was no different. In fact, this will probably go down in history as more of a disaster than anything else. I doubt five years from now, there will be clips of this year's presentation floating around since there were no memorable moments at all to be found here other than Martin Scorsese winning his Oscar for Best Director. The rest of the show, I actually felt embarrassed for those in attendance. Ellen DeGeneres jokes fell flat 95% of the time, The acceptance speeches were blah as always, and worst of all, Will Ferrell's musical number was one of the unfunniest moments in the history of television and that's coming from a Ferrell fan. Film historians can go ahead and forget about this one. 3/10
