F. Murray Abraham takes the Academy Award win for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Milos Forman’s biopic Amadeus. Abraham:
You know, it’s easy to gamble everything when you’ve got nothing to lose, and Milos Forman had a great deal to lose when he gave these brilliant roles to Tom Hulce and me. And his courage became my inspiration. There’s only one thing that’s missing for me tonight and that is to have Tom Hulce standing by my side. [Music starts.] Wait a minute! Wait, I still have more time! Half of this statue belongs to my beloved wife Kate. Thank you.
