I remember watching that live and wondering how it was that Dylan was physically presented with his Oscar at that time, with him on the road. It seemed like that occurred and so the MPA must have sent the statue in a locked case. However, watching this video you can see at the end of his speech that he had a card in his hand, not the actual statue, so he must have been sent it later. Obviously, carting a statue all the way to Australia, even in a locked case, would have violated the MPA's strict secrecy rules.
Very nice. Did you notice, too, that over the closing credits at last night's (2009) Academy Awards, during the "upcoming releases" montage on TV, they played a cool (and recent) cover version of "Leopard-Skin Pillbox Hat"?
Yes (see the end of the post below this one), and one wonders if it was an editorial comment by those-in-the-know or if they really understood the words when they picked it! It was definitely a highlight! And great version too!bb
