IT'S OSCAR WEEK - Classic Academy Award Moments on Video

Here are some Classic Oscar Moments of the Past. Though even I wasn't alive or was too young to see the original broadcasts of many of these they are still great nostalgia for classic film buffs and movie fans. I already posted my favorite Oscar moments (link below) but these are really retro and fun for baby boomers and anyone else into film and movie history.
(The embedding was disabled on most of these as they were taken directly from the Oscars official YouTube channel. The links to each video will open in another window for your convenience.)

  1. The Hattie McDaniel speech always makes me tearful, but thanks for sharing it nonetheless. Maybe I cry because I know the backdrop to the story, the fact that she was not allowed to be buried with the rest of the actors of her generation because of her color. This woman was articulate, intelligent, and humble. Unfortunately she will never know the contribution she made for humanity at large and how proud Americans are of her.
