There ‘s never enough time to say everything in your speech, but you can buy yourself a moment or two if you know the right tricks!
FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF
If you have an Academy Awards and don ‘t have a rousing emotional speech or a cringe-worthy WTF moment at the mic, did you really even have an Academy Awards? The Oscar acceptance speech, everyone. It ‘s a rough road to hoe.
You have less than 2 minutes to say something of substance. While some choose to be a voice for a bigger issue, say, calling attention to climate change or gender equality or gay rights, others basically read off their IMDbPro page.
Either way, Oscar speeches one of the main reasons to tune in, and In honor of this year ‘s Academy Awards, Variety put together a complete list of the most memorable speeches in Oscar history.
This Oscars parody video comes via the whimsical watercolorists at Wishful Genies.
