2001! Gladiator Wins Best Picture on This Date! Crowe Wins Best Actor!

“You know, when you grow up in the suburbs of Sydney or Auckland, or Newcastle like Ridley or Jamie Bell, or the suburbs of anywhere, you know, a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unattainable. But this moment is directly connected to those childhood imagining[s]. And for anybody who’s on the down side of advantage and relying purely on courage, it’s possible. Thanks very much.” – Russell Crowe – from his Oscar acceptance speech on March 25th, 2001.
