My favorite Academy Awards show.
This has always been my favorite Academy Awards show, the 70th show, and 70 years of Oscars. Hosted by Billy Crystal, James Cameron won the Best Director for the multi billion dollar motion picture Titanic which also won 10 additional Oscars, Kim Basinger won the Best Supporting Actress for her seductive role in LA Confeditial and Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt won the leading Best Actor and Best Actress awards for As Good as it Gets. Robin Williams also gave a wonderful performance and won the Best Supporting Actor award for Good Will Hunting. Newcomers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon won their Best Screenplay for Good Will Hunting, while Celin Dion sang her heart out for Titanic's song "My Heart Will Go On". Veteran director Stanley Donen took the Honary Award and then there was a sad memorial for the great actors who died in 1997 and 1998 among them included Robert Mitchum, Lloyd Bridges, Burgess Meredith, Toshiro Mifune, Brian Keith, William Hickey, Richard Jaeckel, J.T. Walsh, Will Hare, Billie Dove and James Stewart. A great show.
