    I want to create some fun trivia quizzes at Gold Derby about Oscar acceptance speeches. Help! Please suggest which ones you’d like to see included. I start out with these suggestions:

    I want to write up a comprehensive list of the truly most memorable moments that occurred during Oscar acceptance speeches

    Dustin Hoffman thanks his mom and dad for not pracising birth control

    Shirley MacLaine: I deserve this!

    Sally Field: you really like me

    Halle Berry “this moment is so much bigger than me

    Michael Moore: Shame on you, Mr. Bush!

    Robin Williams reveals his dad wanted him to have back-up career … “like welding.”

    Whoopie Goldberg – recalling her early life living in the projects

    Oliva Coleman (“This hilarious. I’ve got an Oscar!”

    Tom Hanks, Philadelphia: “Taking best actor for “Philadelphia,” Hanks exhibited the qualities that have helped him remain one our most beloved movie stars. He thanked his wife, praised his co-stars and accidentally outed his high school drama teacher. But the part everyone remembers is the moving tribute he made to AIDS victims.
    “The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels. We know their names. They number a thousand for each of the red ribbons we wear here tonight,” Hanks said

    Jack Palance’s one-armed push up

    My favorite long speech is Matthew McConaughey’s speech: despite its length it felt genuine and down-to-earth.

    My favorite short speech is Steven Soderbergh’s speech: all he needs to do is thank the medium and he has everyone covered.

    Sally Field actual never said “you REALLY like me.”

     

    Just “you like me.”

     

    for some reason it gets remembered as “you like me, you really like me.”

    Joe Pesci, overwhelmed : “It’s my privilege. Thank you.”

    And he left the stage.

     

    Bruce Springsteen won for the song The Sreets of Philadelphia. He joked :

    “It’s the first song I ever wrote for a motion picture, so I guess it’s all downhill from here.”

    James Cameron : ” I’m the king of the world!!!”

    Not as endearing as Sally Field, if I remember correctly.

    Little Anna Paquin ! So much shock and joy !

     

    Al Pacino, after many unsuccessful attempts  : ” You broke my streak !” Then he proceeded to encourage the generation to come.  Very humble and touching.

    Olivia Colman’s speech was iconic.

    So many great moments: “this is hilarious, I’ve got an Oscar”, saying her husband was going to cry, talking to her kids at home and saying that was not going to happen again, “a massive snog”…

    All 3 (or 4) Frances Mcdormand speeches. Each is honest and has an iconic line to be remembered. Most significantly the telling nominated women to stand up in 2018 and the howl in tribute to Nomadland‘s sound mixer Michael Wolf Snyder in 2021

    Kate Winslet:

    Dad whistle or something cause then I know where you are …(Dad whistles)…Yeah!

    Olivia Colman:

    Oh! Lady Gaga! Melissa-

    Shirley MacLaine:

    I’ve always wanted to work with Jack Nicholson since … And to have him in bed with such middle aged joy!

    Sally Field:

    You like me. You really really like me!

    Julia Roberts:

    Sir you’re so quick with the stick but what don’t you sit down cause I may never be here up again.
