    • QUOTES (4)

      • Darryl F. Zanuck: (accepting the award for Best Picture) Thank you very much. I've said it all, and I want to thank again everyone at 20th Century-Fox, and particularly I want to thank someone that you've already well rewarded tonight. Thank you, Joe.

      • Josephine Hull : (accepting her award for Actress in a Supporting Role) How wonderful of you. Thank you all very much, and Mr. Brackett and all of the Academy. I've heard of these wonderful occasions for years and this is the first time I've been here. I must thank that 6 foot 4½ inch "Harvey" [pointing up to a tall nothing standing beside her]. "Harvey" has brought happiness for the past seven years all the way from Boston and New York, and here, which is the gateway to the world through Universal International. And they gave us a wonderful director, a wonderful staff, a wonderful cast, and you. Thank you.

      • Ethel Barrymore: (accepting on behalf of Judy Holliday for the category of Best Actress) I'm very honored to be asked to accept this award for Judy Holliday for her radiant performance in "Born Yesterday." I don't know exactly what she wants me to say but I think it's safe to say that she's very happy and very grateful. Thank you.

      • José Ferrer : (accepting his award for Best Actor) Hello, ladies and gentlemen three thousand miles away. Hello, my dear, beloved Helen Hayes, how wonderful to hear your voice. And I know it's kind of conventional to thank people, but I'm gonna be conventional because I'm sincere. All of you who are connected with this picture – Stanley, Mike, Carl, Frank Planer, George, Mala, Bill Prince, Morris Carnovsky, all of you – you know as well as I do that it's your Oscar as much as it is mine. Also, to you, ladies and gentlemen of the Academy who voted for me, you must know that this means more to me than just the honor accorded to an actor, and from the bottom of my heart I thank you for what I consider a vote of confidence and an act of faith. And believe me, I will not let you down. And one more thing. I think the most important winner of all tonight is the man with the long nose himself who has ridden victoriously through the pages of dramatic literature for over fifty years, and this is just the beginning for Cyrano de Bergerac. Thank you very much.
