Trivia
Eighteen days before the awards ceremony, 55 Oscar statuettes en route from Chicago to the Academy were stolen from a Roadway Express shipping dock in Bell, California. A week and a half later, a scrap metal dealer, Willie Fulgear, found 52 of the statuettes in a Dumpster behind a grocery store. (In the meantime, the Academy had had replacement statuettes made.) For finding the awards, Mr. Fulgear received two tickets to the Academy Awards show, where he was praised by host Billy Crystal, and a $50,000 check from the shipping company. A few months later, $40,000 of his reward was stolen from a safe in his apartment.

In June 2003, FBI agents in South Florida performing a drug bust found one of the three missing Oscar statuettes.

Quotes
Billy Crystal: As host, I have a lot of duties to do tonight. If Warren happens to be on stage, if Annette goes into labor, I have to be her Lamaze coach. But she's a pro and I know she'll do it in one take. And if Roberto Benigni gets out of hand, I've got the stun gun.

Billy Crystal: Welcome to Oscar 2000, or as ABC calls it, Regis's night off.

Himself - Winner: Best Actor in a Supporting Role: [talking about Tom Cruise] You have Tom, who if you had won this, your pay would have gone down so fast. You have any idea what supporting actors get paid? We only get one mobile home.
