    Seeing as I’m so myopic in my love for Jessica Lange, I’m listing her as my personal favorite for this, too.  I feel she gives the most humble speeches.  She’s usually surprised (like, for real), bashful, nervous and extremely thankful.  Don’t get me wrong, Lange can put on a bitch face like no other when she loses, but I don’t think it’s really her “putting on” such a face as much as it being that beautiful women just look bitchier when they’re not being fake, i.e. just listening to the proceedings like a normal human being.

    Back on topic: I’ll have to think about who gives the most insolent or obnoxious speeches, but maybe you guys can help me decide…

    I’m really curious to read the answers.

    I think of recent years, definitely Meryl Streep winning the Oscar for “The Iron Lady”. She seemed so grounded, and honest.

    I’ll take the INSOLENT speeches.

    I love Spielberg, but even though he he did dedicate it to the victims of the Holocaust, something just came off wrong to me.

    Scorsese is my favorite, you knew he wanted it, but seemed so very humbled and honored…”could you double check the envelope?”

    Definitely not Meryl Streep. I can see wheels turning inside her head whenever she gives a speech. God, she’s so fake.

    I also loved Sandra Bullock’s speech at the Oscars.

    Michael Caine, full stop, on the side of humble. Not just when he won the Oscar for “The Cider House Rules”, but his Golden Globe speech for “Little Voice”, too. Really entertaining, as well as gracious, in his presentation.

    You see wheels turning inside her head? Did I ever tell you about the time I gazed into a head of cabbage? I won’t tell you what I witnessed there but I suspect you might feel some sort of affinity with it.

    While I thought he wasn’t the best of the nominees in the category (I ranked Osment and Cruise above him), his “Cider House Rules” acceptance speech was so gracious.  Others may have done it before him, but the way he acknowledged his fellow nominees…

    If anyone ever asks about my favorite Oscar speech, my choice would be this one.

    My favorite as well! What’s not to love (maybe other than hairstyle and outfit…).

    “I’m honoured to be nominated with actresses like Jane FONDA   and Shirley MacLaine, and Anne Bancroft, and Marsha Mason. This is… something. Well anyway… “

    I liked it too although I’m sure he devoted way too much energy and time to praise his co-nominees who – no matter which way you look at it – were the people who wanted him to lost the most and were never close to him privately or professionally. Still, a class act. Wished he was there to accept for “Hannah and Her Sisters”.
