  • Scarlett is going to be a difficult and thankless role. The one I'd like to play is Rhett Butler. --Norma Shearer

  • This is one of the happiest moments of my life and I want to thank each one of you who had a part in selecting me for one of the awards. For your kindness, it has made me feel very, very humble. And I shall always hold it as a beacon for anything that I may be able to do in the future. I sincerely hope I shall always be a credit to my race, and to the motion picture industry. My heart is too full to tell you just how I feel. And may I say thank you and God bless you. --Hattie McDaniel, accepting her Best Supporting Actress Oscar, 1940
  • My favorite scene was the burning of Schenectady, New York, and President Grant surrendering to General Robert. E. Lee. --President Jimmy Carter, 1977
