Quotes

Randy Newman - Winner: Best Original Song: Thank you. I don't want your pity. I want to thank first of all the music branch for giving me so many chances to be humiliated over the years. I have nothing, I'm absolutely astounded that I've won for this, though the picture deserves recognition. They made four pictures in a row that were good, and Peter Weir did that once but I can't remember another instance exactly. All four of the Pixar Disney movies were good.

The Shadow Of 9/11 Hangs Over It
6 February 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

The events of the 11th of September 2001 cast its shadow on this Oscar award ceremony with a one minute silence before the in memoriam montage and there was little in the way of the all singing all dancing comedy extravaganza that we`d come to expect of this award show but this was by no means a bad thing . Entertainment was more or less curtailed to a LOTR send up with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson and that was it . The rest of the show was taken up with clips from the nominations and I have to admit this was actually more enjoyable than the overblown song and dance numbers we`ve seen over the years and Whoopi Goldberg was by no means a bad presenter unlike the very esoteric David Letterman from a few years ago and the one minute silence for the victims of 9/11 was haunting and dignified

As for the awards New Zealand was absolutely robbed . FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING went home with four minor awards while A BEAUTIFUL MIND undeservingly picked up most of the major prizes except for best actor which should have gone to a tough guy New Zealander but went to an An all American nice guy instead . The only Oscar awards I agreed with apart from the ones presented to FELLOWSHIP were the awards for best supporting actress and best supporting actor , both correct calls .
