Hurt wins the Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of homosexual prisoner Luis Molina who becomes unlikely friends with his cellmate (Raul Julia) in Héctor Babenco’s adaptation of Manuel Puig’s novel Kiss of the Spiderwoman. Hurt:

I share this with Raul. Ba-boom, ba-boom, ba-boom [miming his heart beating quickly with his hands], you know… It’s incredible. I didn’t expect to be here so I don’t know what I’m gonna say. I want to thank the courageous people in Brazil with whom I made this film. Saudade, Brazil. I am very proud to be an actor. Thank you very much.
