‘I have no regard for that kind of ceremony. I just don’t think they know what they’re doing. When you see who wins those things — or who doesn’t win them — you can see how meaningless this Oscar thing is. ... I know it sounds terrible, but winning that Oscar for ‘Annie Hall’ didn’t mean anything to me.’

Woody Allen — Winner of best director and screenplay for ‘Annie Hall’ (Best Picture, 1977) and screenplay for ‘Hannah and Her Sisters’ (1986).
