Trivia

Federico Fellini was not present to pick up his Oscar for Amarcord but he accepted at his home in Rome, Italy. Asked for a comment, the great director responded with what would become one of the most legendary quotes in the history of the Academy Awards: "Of course it is a pleasure because in the myth of the cinema the Oscar is the supreme prize."

Fall of Saigon
6 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

I'll never forget. Frank Sinatra was hosting the awards and was on stage when word swept through the audience that Saigon, Vietnam, had fallen. There was pandemonium and cheering. The camera moved to Jane Fonda,almost a cameo appearance, taking an impromptu bow. Frank Sinatra, to his credit, asked the 'liberal Hollywood' audience to stop the cheering. He then walked off of the stage.

I'll always thank Frank Sinatra for chastising this Hollywood audience for their cheering at the fall of S. Vietnam. Ironic, Hollywood elite wildly cheering the fall of the S. Vietnamese to the communists, and who will never experience the right of free speech.
