Trivia
Adriana Caselotti, who provided the voice for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), was offended that the Disney didn't ask for her services to provide the voice for the character who was presenting the award for Best Live Action Short Subject, stating that "Uncle Walt never would have permitted this, to just let some girl do it". Further proof of Snow White's shaky association with the Academy came during the presentation of the award itself when the film of the animated character froze in mid-sentence before announcing the winner.

The board of governors of the Academy had decided this year to eliminate the Live Action and Animated short films category because of its limited appeal, citing it as just a series of student films that nobody ever sees. The idea was shot down by a resounding protest, and oddly enough one of this year's nominees was Kenneth Branagh.

A year after the ceremony, a reporter from the New York Post began a rumor that eventually became one of the Academy Awards most infamous urban legends. The theory was that an inebriated Jack Palance read the wrong name when presenting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, that he read Marisa Tomei's name off the teleprompter, but that the name on the envelope was actually Miranda Richardson. The rumor circulated and eventually got back to the Academy which conducted its own investigation. Price Waterhouse (the firm that tabulates the results) confirmed that Tomei actually did have more votes than the other nominees, and the Academy, looking at the tape of the show, confirmed that Palace was clearly reading the name from the envelope and not the teleprompter.

Quotes
Himself - Winner: Best Original Score and Best Original Song: I've been very fortunate to work with a studio like Disney that really values music. And that attitude starts at the top, and I want to thank Jeffrey Katzenberg and Roy Disney and Michael Eisner for making my work possible. "Aladdin" was a major transition for me from my longtime collaborator and friend Howard Ashman to a new role and new songwriting partner in Tim Rice. As always I was blessed with great support from my music team: Danny Troob and David Friedman, from Chris Montan and Andy Hill, Bruce Botnick, Michael Farrow and Kathy Bennett. From Peter Schneider, John Musker, Ron Clements, Amy Pell and Don Ernst. I owe a debt of thanks to all of them and to the brilliant animators, musicians, singers and actors who made "Aladdin" so spectacular and magical. Scott Shukat, my family, my wife Janis, and Anna and Nora, my love and thanks. And to the members of the Academy, thank you very, very much.

Himself - Host: I promise you that tonight, I will *not* reveal the secret of the movie, "The Crying Game". But I *will* say this. When I watched that movie, I discovered something: White men *can* jump!

Himself - Winner: Best Original Song: Thank you very much. I'd like to thank everybody in the Academy who voted for me, especially Alan. And I'd like to pay tribute to two great lyricists. One, of course, is Howard Ashman. I'm extremely lucky to be standing in his shoes. I know he'd be here today if he were still alive. And the other is the great Sammy Cahn, who is my inspiration for many years. And it's great to be working with Alan, and my thanks to everybody at Disney.
