He won it in the category "Best Feature Length Documetary" for the film The Man Who Skied Down Everest
and his speech was quite short and a bit of a poke at the whole industry in Hollywood:
"This is an American award for a Canadian film about a Japanese skier skiing down a Nepalese mountain" and then he said some other stuff, I guess. But I don't know because I have never seen it. I'd dearly love to see it and so would his kids (my uncles and aunt).
I have contacted the folks who run the Oscars but they are ignoring me (I am in their email cue, I guess). Can anybody help me here? Do you just happen to have the 1976 Oscars on VHS and can you upload Budge's speech to YouTube?
