    What is your absolute FAVORITE Oscar speech of the past 10 years? It doesn’t have to be an actor/actress — just what acceptance speech affected you the most from a decade of Oscar speeches?

    Make your voice heard below! I’d like to make this into a poll that’s introduced on the main Gold Derby home page. But for that to happen we need YOU to pick your passions first.

    Ready… GO!

    I loved how self-deprecating Streep was in her speech, at least in the beginning.. Sandra Bullock was both hilarious, gracious and gave a beautiful advocation for adoption, something like, ‘This is for the mommas who take care of the babies no matter where they come from’. Good stuff.

    I loved Adrien Brody’s Oscar speech. I think it was one of the longest speeches in Oscar history. It was funny, poignant, and touching. And he cut the music off! Perfect!

    Sean Penn winning for 2008’s Milk. He was funny, political (without being obnoxious), and grateful. His quip, “I don’t know how hard I make it to sometimes appreciate me,” was priceless. Firth winning for The King’s Speech was good. He’s always charming and witty. Meryl was divine last year! 

    Sidenote: I am absolutely dreading some of the speeches we’ll hear this year. Another Day-Lewis opining on the great craft of acting. Hathaway thanking the several “leaders” on the set of Les Miserables and “her people.” Whichever dull as paste actor wins in the supporting role will be a drag…unless Waltz wins (he’s always lovely). I suppose Lawrence will be cute and funny. I don’t know about Chastain, Riva, or Watts. Wallis would just be great, but that’s not going to happen.

    Ari Sandel delivered a great speech, when he won for ‘West bank story’,

    All the ones mentioned are really great (Brody’s especially), though I’d like to throw some love toward Luke Matheny for his speech after winning 2010’s Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film for “God of Love” (“Oh, I should have gotten a haircut. Hey, everybody!”). Short, sweet and incredibly touching.

    Christoph Waltz!

    I honestly think he could win another Academy Award just with all his speeches put together . His win for Inglorious Basterds was unique, funny and he managed to thank people, but not make it sappy.

    And he’s hosting SNL in two weeks

    I liked Dustin Lance Black’s. I’m not a gay male, but it was really tender and emotional I felt.

    I liked Streep from last year too, because I think she really didn’t know she was going to win. 

    And Scorsese’s of course!

    I want Joaquin to win the Oscar this year, to hear his speech. Imagine what he would possibly say.

    Adrian Brody’s speech was funny and very moving, and I think what a surprise his win was contributed to that… The speeches are always better when it’s someone no one was really expecting to win gets it.

    LOVED Reese Witherspoon’s speech… she really is as sweet as peaches.

    But my favorite of the last decade probably was Marion Cotillard, partly because I was so rooting for her and so happy when she got it, and because of how genuinely honored and filled with joy she is… “Thank you life! Thank you love!” I tear up every time.
