Rick Baker: Thank you. We'd like to thank the Academy, Universal, Imagine, Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for making such a creative film. The entire cast, for their patience and cooperation. Jim Carrey, for his brilliant performance. My crew - over 150 talented people contributed greatly to the work that we accept this award for. I'm sorry I can't thank them all individually, but one I have to thank tonight is Kazuhiro Tsuji. Kazu not only applied Jim Carrey's "Grinch" makeup but designed many of the makeups...

Best Oscar Presentation in Years
4 May 2001 | by MovieCoopieSee all my reviews

The 73rd Academy Awards show was one of the best ever and it was full of surprises. A risk was taken this year when the producers had Steve Martin as the MC, but their risk paid off Martin kept the show going at a great pace and the show seemed shorter than any other in recent history. What made the oscars great were the surprises which took place during the night, many of the predictions I had read stated that Ang Lee was the sure thing for best director and that Crouching Tiger could easily steal Best Picture from Gladiator. When Marcia Gay Harden upset the best supporting actress category with her completely unpredicted win I had a feeling more surprises were in store. Traffic and Gladiator were my two favorite films of this year and I considered Crouching Tiger to be all Hype which it was. So when Steven Soderbergh took best director and Gladiator won best picture I was relieved. The biggest surprise though was probably that Russell Crowe won best actor I presumed I was the only one who thought he deserved it, I thought it would either be mainstream Tom Hanks or the edgy and talented Ed Harris. While the film clips for best picture nominees could have been better I don't have much bad things to say about this years Awards ceremony.
