I’m very pleased to tell you then nominees for outstanding performance by and Actor in a Leading Role. And to remind you that each of them has given the screen a remarkable body of work during their careers. Those nominees are:
Dustin Hoffman (MIDNIGHT COWBOY 1969)
From the young Benjamin of the Graduate. The unforgettable “Ratso” Rizzo and Midnight Cowboy and on through the Chinary and Indian Chief, Little Big Man. The strange and courageous (PAPILLON 1973) prisoner in Papillon. The charismatic and controversial (LENNY 1974) Lenny Bruce. And the brilliant reporter in ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN 1976. And now this year: “Kramer vs. Kramer”.
Jack Lemmon. We’ve watched through the years of (SOME LIKE IT HOT 1959) comedy, beginning with Mr. Roberts and Some Like It Hot. And seen him become all of us (THE APARTMENT 1960) in America at times in the roles he’s played. Desperate, searching (DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES 1968) frantic, lost, befuddled and eventually caught up (THE ODD COUPLE 1968) in the largest issues that perhaps will ever face mankind in the picture which he has been (SAVE THE TIGER 1972) nominated this year: The China Syndrome.
Al Pacino. He has virtually (PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK 1971) a specialist in roles the show the darker side of contemporary life. (THE GODFATHER 1972) He has brought to every role an intensity the deepens the screen and broadens (SCARECROW 1973) the human experience. His films have included Panic In Needle Park, Scarecrow, Serpico (1974), Godfather’s 1 and 2, Dog Day Afternoon, (THE GODFATHER II 1974), and the role which he is nominated tonight: The young lawyer in: And Justice For All. (DOG DAY AFTERNOON 1975).
Roy Scheider. (KLUTE 1971) If there is a sort of every-man among these actors it is he. (THE FRENCH CONNECTION 1971) His film roles have been earthy, accessible, vulnerable, imperfect man (SHEILA LEVINE IS DEAD AND LIVING IN NEW YORK 1975) but clearly and recognizably human beings all. His films have included Klute (JAWS 1975), The French Connection, Jaws, The Scorcerer (1977), and tonight he is nominated for his role in: “All That Jazz”
And, Peter Sellers. (THE WORLD OF HENRY ORIENT 1964) many of the film roles he’s played have become instant symbols and part of our (I LOVE YOU ALICE B. TOKLAS 1969) language. Think for instance of Dr. Strangelove and the bumbling and invincible (RETURN OF THE PINK PANTHER 1975) Inspector Clouseau, it would appear that he’s added another unforgettable character (MURDER BY DEATH 1976) to his collection this year for a performance which he is nominated tonight (THE PRISONER OF ZENDA 1979) “Chance the Gardener” in Being There.

He has no genitalia and he’s holding a sword.
I’d like to thank my parents for not practicing birth control.
I’m up here with mixed feelings. I’ve been critical of the Academy, and for reason. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to be able to work. I am greatly honored for being chosen by the producer, Stanley Jaffe, and the director, Bob Benton, and to have worked in a family with them, and with Meryl and with Justin, who if he loses again we’ll have to give him a lifetime achievement award. And to Jane Alexander and to Jerry Greenberg and to Nestor and to the crew on the film who was part of that family. And to the crew and to the directors like Bob Fosse and Mike Nichols and John Schlesinger that I’ve worked with before. We are laughed at when we are up here, sometimes, for thanking. But when you work on a film you discover that there are people who are giving that artistic part of themself that goes beyond a paycheck, and they are never up here. And many of them are not members of the Academy, and we never hear of them. But this Oscar is a symbol, I think, and it is given for appreciation from those people whom we never see. They are part of our life.
I refuse to believe that I beat Jack Lemmon, that I beat Al Pacino, that I beat Peter Sellers. I refuse to believe that Robert Duvall lost. We are a part of an artistic family. There are sixty thousand actors in this Academy – pardon me – in the Screen Actors Guild, and probably a hundred thousand in Equity. And most actors don’t work, and a few of us are so lucky to have a chance to work with writing and to work with directing. Because when you’re a broke actor you can’t write; you can’t paint; you have to practice accents while you’re driving a taxi cab. And to that artistic family that strives for excellence, none of you have ever lost and I am proud to share this with you. And I thank you.
