While perusing special makeup fx artist extraordinaire, Steve Wang’s, Facebook fan page, I ran across a link Wang posted of a sweet and funny speech by J.J. Abrams about Dick Smith during the 2011 Governors Awards.
Also I found Rick Baker presenting the award to Dick Smith. Watching Mr. Smith accept the award made me get all misty eyed.
If you love special makeup fx, then you know that Dick Smith is the godfather of the genre, so it was fitting that he receive this award.
Unfortunately the Oscar’s channel disabled the embedding feature on their videos. Fortunately, I remember enough about html to do it on my own (suck it Oscars!).
However, that didn’t work (DANG IT!), so you will still have to click on the link to go to YouTube and watch it.
