    Pls help me to compile a list of really great Golden Globe speeches — so good that they probably helped them to win an Oscar next — like Hilary Swank (first win), Jamie Foxx and even Ben Affleck last year. Who else?

    Conversley, who was so AWFUL on the Globes stage that they blew they shot at the Oscar. For example Annette Bening was so blaaaaaah winning for “Being Julia” that I’m sure no academy member wanted to see her repeat that at the podium on Oscar night.

    None. 

    Until I hear it from a bunch of voters, I will never believe that acceptance speeches play any sort of role in Oscar voting.

    Emma Thompson for her writing Golden Globe. That speech was amazing! She probably would have won the oscar even if her speech wasn’t great though.

    Geoffrey Rush’s speech for Shine was excellent. Especially his bit at the end:

    “And finally, to all those people who were happy to bankroll the film as long as I WASN’T in it…”
    *thrusts Golden Globe for all to see, eliciting cheers from the audience* 

    A takedown managed with absolute class.

    Gwyneth Paltrow’s speech in 1999 was DYNAMITE.

    It was genuine.  It was emotional.  Her grandpa and her dad both had cancer battles.  Look at the Tom Hanks reaction shot!!!  Those are the reactions you want to have at the Globes.  This speech only could have helped her clinch the Oscar.

    P.S. I don’t think the video for Hilary Swank’s first win is available.  I’ve tried looking for it to no avail.

    I don’t know how Hathaway won the Oscar after HER Golden Globe speech… Jesus… “Blerg… Thanks for that word, Tina.” Oh God, get off the stage. I really can’t say enough bad things about Hathaway for that entire awards season 2012-2013. Her Oscar speech has to go down as one of the worst ever. Loved her in the film, though, I do have to say that.

    Tom Hanks Golden Globe speech for Philadelphia (1993) was very moving and I think the emotional and triggering effect it had on audience members (especially his mentions of those who had died of the AIDS virus) was enough to surge him to the Oscar, for which he gave another great speech.

    ^ This (unless they bash people in their speech or something like that)

    I suppose some voters would think twice if they disliked a speech. But it’s probably not a major factor in most cases.

    I don’t know any speeches offhand.

    But did the producers of Z bully their way into the Best Picture race? They refused the foreign film globe out of spite for not being nominated in the drama field, and then at the Oscars, they got a BP nom. Any validity to this theory?

    If Forrest Whittaker could still win the Oscar after all of those horrible speeches beforehand (surprisingly, his Oscar speech wasn’t bad), then I refuse to believe bad speeches can affect voters voting for them.

    Good speeches might give them a touch more publicity.  If they are incredibly charming or funny, they might get mentioned in an article, or it might help them book an extra interview or something, but I don’t really think they help THAT much.

    Jennifer Lawrence’s speeches were dynamite but I guess that’s just an extension to her personality and talent so in her case she won because of obvious talent, knockout timing and Harvey Weinstein,

    ^ well i can safely say that your speeches (at least the written ones) wouldn’t take you far.

    If the Academy voting based on someone’s GG speech then they should burry themselves and stop giving out Oscars each year.
