Celebrating the Oscars: My Favorite Oscar Moments - 1997
The first year I remember watching the Oscars was 1997, during the Titanic frenzy. But my favorite moment of the night was not the Titanic sweep, it was Best Supporting Actor. Robin Williams was my childhood, with Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire. He was a one of a kind talent, whose humor, and darkness always came through on screen. His death still sits with me and still impacts me. I'm glad the Academy recognized his brilliance, and of course, his speech was hilarious and surprisingly sweet.
