The Academy Awards Top 5 Memorable Speeches

Now that The Academy Awards has finally come to a close, why not reminisce on some of the most unforgettable moments at the Oscars®. It’s subjective to argue what was either the “best” or the “worst” Oscar speeches, but its undeniable that they are all significant.

#5 – Angelina Jolie for Best Supporting Actress (Girl Interrupted, 2000). Dressed in complete black, Jolie proclaims her undying love for her brother and simply creeps out the audience. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPWpHWr1L7s

#4 -Gwyneth Paltrow for Best Actress (Shakespeare in Love, 1998). To watch Paltrow gushing and choking on her emotions will either pull on your heart strings, or close the youtube box completely. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NG9p1FFwxb0

#3 -  Marlon Brando for Best Actor ( The Godfather, 1973). The actor had asked spokeswoman, Sacheen Littlefeather, to represent him at the awards.  Win he won, she declined the Oscar and stated, “He very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award. The reasons for this being the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QUacU0I4yU

#2 – Adrien Brody for Best Actor (The Pianist, 2002). A touching speech is “winged” by Brody, who didn’t even prepare anything for his acceptance. After placing a smooch on Halle Berry, he shares his passion to bring peace and steer away from war. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HgWANva9Xk

#1 – Michael Moore & Michael Donovan for Best Documentary (Bowling for Columbine, 2003). Moore invites all the documentary nominees to stage to get a strong message across; to protest the war and protest Bush (calling him a fictitious president). Who can forget the quote, “If you’ve got the Pope and Dixie Chicks against you, your time is up!” http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/michaelmooreoscaracceptance.htm

Reviews Are In… How did Anne and James Do?

It’s the morning after the Oscars, and along with the winners, everyone is talking about the show’s hosts. The reviews are in and they are not looking so good. The Hollywood Reporter said James Franco “bombed.”

According to Rob Shuter from Popeater.com, a TV executive stated, “This was a disaster. Before the show began something was wrong with James. His live interview on ABC backstage should have been a warning sign. He was awkward and looked as if he knew what a terrible evening was ahead for all of us.”

We agreed that Franco appeared to be a a little out of it, and Anne Hathaway seemed to have a case of nerves and the giggles. Although, she definitely gave the night the old college try. I don’t think the show went as The Academy planned, and that they will probably go back to their old, traditional ways next year.
