Same day of the Oscars, Hollywood loses Bill Paxton at age 61 (hard to believe he was 61!). He had a fatal stroke after heart surgery. :( My favorite role of his was as astronaut Fred Haise in Apollo 13- I always thought he should have gotten an Oscar nomination.

Of course, there was also Twister ("Another cow!" "Actually I think that was the same one."), Aliens ("Game over man! Game over!"), and Weird Science (my first exposure to him, and also Robert Downey Jr.).

Cool bit of trivia- he saw JFK just before the assassination:
