Ten Memorable Oscar Acceptance Speeches

Published by at 9:00 am under Lists,Movies


One of the more interesting aspects of the Oscars is the acceptance speeches that the winners give upon receiving their little gold statues.  Some are quick and to the point, and others lag on and on until music starts playing in an attempt to shut the winner up.  Of course, there’s also the bizarre, the political, and the hilarious.  After the jump, take a look at ten of the more memorable Oscar acceptance speeches:

Cuba Gooding, Jr. for Best Supporting Actor


Adrian Brody for Best Actor


Roberto Benigni for Best Foreign Language Film


Michael Moore for Best Documentary Feature


Halle Berry for Best Actress


Sacheen Littlefeather for Marlon Brando for Best Actor


Steven Spielberg for Best Director


Denzel Washington for Best Actor


Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for Best Original Screenplay


Three 6 Mafia for Best Song
