Critic Reviews for The Academy Awards 64th Oscars

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

Like it or not, the Academy Awards still are the last bastion of full-throttle live TV entertainment... Best of all, it included the giddily brilliant improvisations of Billy Crystal, in his third year as host.

Mr. Palance's cheerfully unprintable acceptance speech, not to mention his impromptu calisthenics display, provided Billy Crystal, the program's sensationally quick-witted host, with a whole evening's worth of running gags.
