Clip Reveals Frenzied Behind-the-Scenes Direction of a Legendary Oscar Moment: VIDEO


Here's a Friday flashback for you.

Ever wondered what the director of the Academy Awards does to make a (usually) technically flawless show run smoothly? Apparently it takes quite a bit of energy, shouting, and snapping to do the trick.

A clip uploaded by YouTube user Tashy Siny and reported by Business Insider highlights behind-the-scenes work at the 1996 Oscars when Cuba Gooding, Jr. (above) won Best Supporting Actor for "Jerry Maguire." The speech has gone down in history as one of the show's most vivacious, and director Louis J. Horvitz (below, center) had energy to match.

Stick with it for the last line; priceless.
