  • Trivia

    • When 100 year-old film pioneer Hal Roach was honored the show's producers decided to have him give his acceptance speech from his seat. However, he didn't have a microphone and, not realizing this, proceeded to speak anyway. The home audience (and 95% of those in the auditorium) watched him speak though they heard nothing. The gaffe was quickly covered by host Billy Crystal who jibed "I think that's appropriate because Mr. Roach started in silent films".
