    I apologize in advance if there is already a thread dedicated to the best and worst Oscar speeches. I will list some just from the top if my head, but will more than likely change my opinion..

    -Best-
    *Louise Fletcher (hate the win, but she had a beautiful speech)
    *Rita Moreno (very short, but she stated classy
    *Anthony Hopkins (simple, humble, and great voice)
    *Marion Cotillard (just loved everything about it)

    -Worst-
    *Halle Berry (Loved her win, but I can’t even watch her speech fully again)
    *Melissa Leo (Just bad)
    *Sean Penn “2nd” (tried to hard)
    *Jamie Foxx (Great win but was too long and he was annoying)

    Was there a time in the history of universe that Jamie Foxx wasn’t annoying?

    Yup, Louise Fletcher was the first to come to mind. Also, Ruth Gordon!

    Berry’s speech underlines the importance of her win. Anyone calling it bad simply dislikes pretty women getting emotional when they win awards.

    I’d have given Berry an award for her speech. She WAS truely shocked, being the first and still only afro-american actress to win in Lead. There was absolutely nothing wrong with that speech.
    Tbh, I don’t like some wins, like SaBu’s still, but I can’t help loving her speech.

    My personal favorites: Frances McDormand and Vivien Leigh (gwtw). When they’re shorter speeches and thank the right people without dragging it out, it just seems more genuine.

    My least favorites: Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence and Anne Hathaway. Good god, when you’re so in love with yourself, it’s so intolerable to watch. Especially HB’s, with the hyperventilating and tears? Like nails down a chalkboard to think about. I get the importance, but the reaction simply overshadows the win.

    In her defense she thought she had no chance of winning because of Bacall, and even admitted to not being prepared. I think she was in shock. On a side note, her dress made her look like Dracula lol

    For more recent choices, I thought Meryl Streep gave a fantastic speech for The Iron Lady, although all her speeches have been pretty good. She was very humble and seemed to think that she was never going to win again (not true). I also loved Cate Blanchett’s speech for Blue Jasmine because she complimented all the other performances in detail. She talked for a long time without being played off lol. No one plays off Queen Cate.

    Favorites would be either of Emma Thompson’s poised, funny, thoughtful and supremely British speeches for her Oscar wins. She’s so brilliant.

    I loved Eddie Redmayne’s speech. It was genuine and humble. And he’s adorable + hot at the same time I’m not sure I wanna cuddle him or ride him lol

    doesnt matter how shocked you are, you should always have a set of people ready to thank anyways. I don’t recall she thanked anyone and just walked off.

    ^I’m with Prideful here.

    I mean, if you’re nominated, you are one of only 5 people who are going to win. There’s no reason to be completely, 100% unprepared.
