Wins Oscar

24 Mar, 2002

Howard wins the Academy Award for Best Achievement in Directing for his drama Beautiful Mind. Mel Gibson presents the award.

I also want to mention that before my mom (Jean Howard) passed away about eighteen months ago, she predicted that this was going to happen for me on this film. Well, she also made that prediction on every movie that I’ve directed since 1983. So now you know a little something about my mom. Thank you, Mom.
