F. Murray Abraham received massive acclaim for his role in the movie giving him his first Oscar award.

While accepting his Best Actor Oscar in 1985, he stated:

It would be a lie if I told you I didn't know what to say because I've been working on this speech for about twenty-five years. But you're not going to hear any of those speeches, because none of the speeches were less than forty-five seconds.  

The actor continued:

"You know, it's easy to gamble everything when you've got nothing to lose, and Milos Forman had a great deal to lose when he gave these brilliant roles to Tom Hulce and me, and his courage became my inspiration. There's only one thing that's missing for me tonight, and that's to have Tom Hulce standing by my side."

F. Murray Abraham: Famous Quotes 

  1. Comedy is my absolute favourite, but I don't get a chance to do it anymore because I'm cast as a villain so much. I think comedy is a very honest medium compared to other theatre or screen genres, because there's never any doubt if it works. 
  2. When people offer you scripts when you're 80 years old, you really do look at them. I'm one of the lucky ones, and I work all the time. This one, it's nothing but fun. You can see the writing. It's fun, he's an interesting character and he seems genuine.  
  3. When the life is good in this business it's really good, but when it's bad, it's terrible. No matter all of your credits and accomplishments - you can be forgotten in a trice. The idea that you have to go back and start again after considerable success can destroy you if you're not strong. I never lost track of who I am and what I can do, because I continually find things to do, but not everyone has that resource. 
  4. I have two brothers buried in the military cemetery in Texas. I don't want to see any more of that. 
  5. People desire power. I don't know why they want it so. It seems to me it implies a hugely superior intellect which separates them from most of the populace.
