Cool Videos: Jack Nicholson accepts award from set of Cuckoo's Nest
My favorite actor of all time accepting an award for one of my favorite movies of all time might just be the greatest acceptance speech ever. It’s 1975 and Jack Nicholson is seen in the video accepting his Leading Actor award for his performance in THE LAST DETAIL and CHINATOWN on the set of ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST. You can also see a young Danny Devito in character, how great is this? Too bad Nurse Ratched had to ruin it all.
This clip was posted online as part of the "100 BAFTA Moments" countdown, a series of vintage videos and photographs leading up to this year's ceremony on February 8th.
