Night of nights
‘Oh, thank you, thank you ever so much. I’m so happy. Thank you.’
At the 2001 Academy Awards, Julia Roberts was very excited when she won the best Actress Oscar. She won the award for her role in the film Erin Brockovich. At the one point during her speech, she started laughing wildly. ‘I love it up here…I love the world! I’m so happy!’ she said.
Lots of people get very excited about the Academy Awards, and it’s not just the film stars. For days and weeks before the event, a favourite topic on every radio and television station in Los Angeles is who will win. There is lots of talk about which film will receive the Best Picture award. Fans line up for days, hoping to get one of the 400 free seats near the red carpet outside the theatre where the awards are presented.
The fans’ first glimpse of their favourite stars is when they step out of their limousines. As the stars walk down the red carpet, a crowd of reporters, cameramen and photographers shout their names. Excited reporters tell the world about how the stars look. They describe their gowns and suits, their jewels and hairstyles.
When the Academy Awards began in 1929, the winners were announced in the newspapers, but there was very little interest from the media. Over the years, as the film industry has grown, interest in the Academy Awards has also grown enormously. Today, millions of television viewers in the United States and around the world watch the awards. It’s the night each year when Hollywood honours its stars and film-makers.
The little golden statue given to Academy Award winners is called ‘Oscar’. Nobody knows how it came to be given this nickname. The most popular story is that an employee of the Academy, Margaret Herrick, once said that the statue looked like her Uncle Oscar.
In 1999, pop star Michael Jackson paid US$1.54 million to buy the Best Picture Oscar won by the producer David Selznick for the 1939 film Gone with Wind
Titanic (1997) won eleven awards including Best Picture. The only other film to receive this many awards was Ben Hur (1959)
Meryl Streep and Katharine Hepburn have received the most Oscar nominations for acting. Both have been nominated twelve times. Hepburn has won four Oscars, and Streep has won two. Next comes Jack Nicholas with eleven nominations and three Oscars.
Oscar winner: Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks is one of Hollywood’s most popular actors. He has starred in more than thirty films. He became a well-know face when he starred in the hit film Splash, released in 1984.
Big In this 1988 film, Hanks played a 13-year-old boy in the body of a 35-year-old man. The film made him a star, and he was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar.
Philadelphia Tom Hanks had two huge hits in 1993: Sleepless in Seattle and Philadelphia. He won the Best Actor Oscar for his role as a lawyer with AIDS in Philadelphia.
Forrest Gump The film was an enormous success in 1994. It won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director, and Hanks won his second Best Actor Oscar.
Saving Private Ryan Hanks was nominated again for Best Actor for this 1998 film about the Second World War.
Cast Away Hanks received a lot of praise for his role as a man alone on a desert island. He was nominated for Best Actor for this role in 2001, but it was Russell Crowe, the star of Gladiator, who won the Oscar that year.
Famous film actors are often called film stars. Perhaps this is because, like the stars in the sky, everyone looks up to them. Perhaps it is because we think of them as bright lights. Star can also be used a verb:
In 1997, Kate Winslet starred in Titanic.
Hollywood is a suburb of Los Angeles, in California. Many film studios are located in Hollywood. (Film studios are where films are made.) The first studios were built in Hollywood in the 1930s because California has very sunny weather, which is useful for making films outside.
There are some differences between British English and American English. For example, British English uses the word film but American English uses the word movie. Because Hollywood is the centre of America’s film industry, American films are often called Hollywood movies. And American film stars are often called Hollywood movie stars.
