“I guess this proves there are as many nuts in the Academy as anywhere else,” said Best Sctor Jack Nicholson.

Said Best Actress winner Louise Fletcher: “It looks like you all hated me so much that you are giving me the award for it, and Im loving every minute of it. All I can say is, I’ve loved being hated by you.”
