When Kevin won the award for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards, he automatically became the following year's presenter of the Best Supporting Actress award.
For that occasion, he wore a 3/4 length black velvet coat by Armani.
Billy Crystal:Here to present the award for Best Supporting Actress, please welcome last year's Best Supporting Actor, Mr. Kevin Spacey.
Kevin Spacey: I'm here t-
Crystal: Apparently you didn't hear the news from Crown Heights. We're not allowed to wear this anymore (referring to Kevin's long jacket). I myself have enjoyed my two days as a gentile. I had a great Palm Sunday. I even enjoyed a daiquiri.
Spacey: Are you done yet?
Crystal: Just having such a good time.
Spacey: Oh? Are you?
Crystal: Would you do me a favor?
Spacey: Ah, sure...
Crystal: I don't want to keep the actresses waiting, but would you do this as Christopher Walken? He also was a Best Supporting Actor.
Spacey (as Walken): Oh, Billy, come on! It's wrong of you to put me on the spot...here...in front of all these people...tonight. It's wrong.
Crystal: I like that.
Spacey (as Walken): I'm upset.
Crystal: Don't be upset.
Spacey (as Walken): I thought...another psychopathic killer I cannot do and now...look...America loves him [referring to Billy Bob Thorton's character in Sling Blade]. It's wrong.
Spacey: On to the business at hand. I am here to present the Oscar for an actress in a supporting role. These are my fellow alumni of high school drama clubs who have already won our admiration and respect in supporting roles performed with the brilliance of these five artists. They have done for film what the Cheshire cat did for Alice. They have left an indelible impression.
