What a night!!
9 March 2003 | by SkippyDevereauxSee all my reviews

This was the year that "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" won 5 Academy Awards--Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay. It was the first film to win all four of the big awards since "It Happened One Night" back in 1934. Louise Fletcher gave what is perhaps the most moving acceptance speech in the history of the Academy Awards, as she spoke to her deaf parents in Alabama that night via sign language. She said, "I want to thank you for teaching me to have a dream. You are seeing my dream come true". Must be historic for me to remember it after all these years. Also, I remember the ending of the show, which seemed to went downhill fast, as for some reason Elizabeth Taylor came out and babbled on about finding Hollywood everywhere in the world and then she, along with the USC (University of Southern California) band, tried to get the audience to sing "America the Beautiful", but apparently Miss Taylor did not know the words. Pitiful way to end an Oscar telecast!!
