But other non state institutions must participate in this important system of checks and balances as well. These checking institutions include the academy, the media, religious institutions and NGOs.
There's no doubt West Point impacted who I am... It has an enormous emphasis, not only on military aspects, but character development. Whether it's the honor code, or the interactions you have, both with the cadet leadership and the academy leadership, every place you are is a character test.
I am glad to have this opportunity of expressing my high appreciation of the honour extended to me many years ago by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science by enrolling me amongst its members.
I am an outsider looking in, absolutely. You're not going to see me at the Academy Awards 'Vanity Fair' party any time soon. I'm not somebody who, no matter where I go, there are paparazzi or any of that nonsense. But I have a little window into that world, and I can enter it and dance around. I want to be the audience's ticket into the party.
I never make a movie for awards consideration. I will use the hope of getting an Academy Award a) to honor the people who work so hard and also b) it's the greatest Good Housekeeping seal in the world. It's the greatest brand. It's as good as Louis Vuitton and Dior in the world of moviemaking. It's the Super Bowl.
Music is my life, professionally, for nearly 60 years. To be recognized by the academy is still the highest honor.
'Groundhog Day' was one of the greatest scripts ever written. It didn't even get nominated for an Academy Award.
The most experience I had in the criminology field is playing a thug as an actor. That was my first paid job. The police academy at the college was paying people to reenact the calls that potential cops would get. So I got to play thugs and people who were unruly.
The Oscar sits on some shelf above my desk. If there was an earthquake, I could actually be killed by my own Academy Award.
In military school, on day one you must memorize the mission of the Merchant Marine Academy.
High school was interesting, because I went from a public school middle school to an academy where the first year we were doing Latin, chemistry, biology. I mean, I was woefully unprepared for the type of study.
There is strong mentoring of women in the academy. Corporations appear more willing to resist affirmative action to advance women, and boards and shareholders are more tolerant of this approach.

I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game.
There's a lot of great movies that have won the Academy Award, and a lot of great movies that haven't. You just do the best you can.
I'm used to seeing it, but it's weird having an Academy Award. You usually only see one of them on the TV show when they give them out, so it's kind of surreal to have one in your house.
Academe, n.: An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught. Academy, n.: A modern school where football is taught.
I will never win an Oscar, and do you know why? First of all, because I'm not Jewish. Secondly, I make too much money for all those old farts in the Academy.
I'm thrilled to be asked to host the Academy Awards for the second time because, as they say, the third time's a charm.
You've probably noticed already that I'm dressed like a grown-up... I apologize to the Academy, and I promise that I will never do it again.

To this day, when I say that I went to the American Academy, people are very impressed. The reputation of the school has always been fantastic.
