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:
