Horror has only grabbed a few Oscars over the years, so when Silence of the Lambs (1991) scooped the pool in 1992 for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) – it was a rare joy. Anthony Hopkin’s Best Actor win was well deserved. The Welsh-born actor’s chilling performance as Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lector was an instant classic and is now a horror icon. Here is the footage of Hopkins accepting his award at the 1992 Academy Awards.
