As it is Oscar night, let’s flashback to March 27th 1995, to Peter Capaldi’s moment in the Tinseltown spotlight. At the 67th Academy Awards, the film “Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life” won Short Film (Live Action) – in a tie vote with “Trevor” in the same category.
“Okay, thanks. I’ve got nineteen seconds for a very short speech and I’d like to thank everybody who worked on the film, who gave of themselves […] of their talent and generosity. Richard E. Grant, who was fabulous; Ruth Kenley-Letts, who is a fabulous producer; and Elaine Collins, who was the real creative dynamo behind it all. And my mum and dad, and the Academy. Thanks a lot. Bye.”
Once a winner, always a winner.
