It's coming up to Oscars time, and the forum is ripe for a thread containing current and historical comments from deluded showbiz types.

 

This is from Cathy Tyson in the Guardian:

 

I’m indebted to my parents... they were both working-class. My father was a barrister and my mother was a senior social worker.

That's 'Denis', by the way. Still alive, according the internet, which i didn't realise. Haven't seen him since the late Eighties.

My bad. I used to call him Den....and called me "hey  you, !"

 

 

(I played the Kings Hall Belle Vue in May 1968 for The Cheetham Hill Band under Harry Cheshire ( Les Preludes), so he was probably after my time)

My dad was part of the design team for Boosey & Hawkes' 'Sovereign' range of instruments. He <ahem> took a lot of work home with him that never made it back the the workshop, including 'The Leviathan', an euphonium with a tuba bell grafted onto it. Sounded great, but never made it to production.

I bet he had a whale of a time with that instrument.

For his performance as a man dying of AIDS in 'Philadelphia' Tom Hanks received the Best Actor gong. In his speech he thanked his old drama teacher and called him 'One of the finest gay Americans'.
Trouble was, the actor's teacher had never actually come out.!!!  Oops.

A few years later this incident was made into a film, 'In and Out'.

 

And chief luvvy Sir Laurence Olivier's speech takes come beating - "This award is a great firmament of your nation's generosities which shows the prodigal, pure human kindness of it all. This is a beautiful star in that firmament which shines on me at this moment and I am experiencing the euphoria that happens to so many of us at the first breath of the majestic glow of a new tomorrow."
