No one was more surprised by ”Pianist” star Adrien Brody’s win than Brody himself, unless it was presenter Halle Berry, recipient of a big smooch from the Best Actor winner. ”I bet they didn’t tell you that was in the gift bag,” he quipped. ”There comes a time in life when everything seems to make sense, and this is not one of those times,” he added, launching into a lengthy, tearful speech that not even orchestra leader Bill Conti could cut short – Brody waved him off, Julia Roberts-style. The star of the Holocaust drama ended his speech by hoping for a peaceful resolution to the current war and a quick return home for a friend serving in Kuwait.
