On March 23rd, 1998, at the 70th Annual Academy Awards, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, Celine won an Oscar in the category Better original song. She sang the winning song My heart will go on.
Céline Dion wore a dark blue high-neck gown by Michael Kors to bring focus to the Titanic-inspired necklace.
When I sang the song My Heart Will Go On, the Titanic song at the 70th Annual Academy Awards on March 23, 1998, I had a big heart necklace and by singing with emotion, I got so upset, I knocked the heart and it almost fell. I thought, if the heart falls to the ground, any fool could jump on it. I hurt myself because it was rather big, full of diamonds (14 millions) and I hoped that it was not broken, I had to go on singing my song, and fortunately the heart remained hanging!
