Oscar 2007: Robert Boyle, Designer, Honorary Oscar

Robert Boyle, the 98-year-old Honorary Oscar recipient admitted that he misses the sense of community of Hollywood in his younger days. “People seemed to be working together more in those days. They're more separate today, and that's what I regret.”

Looking at today's digital-aided art direction, he said he doesn't really keep up with it. “I am an absolute dummy with a computer. I've come from the old studio system of hands-on work.” He did say, though, that he would like to see “more discipline” in the making of films today.
