The Most Memorable Oscar Speeches [Video]


The Oscars are tonight! This marks the end of award season (sad!), but it also gives us one last excuse to be lazy on Sunday night and pretend we’re Joan Rivers as we critique what everyone is wearing. That’s all well and good, but what I truly care about are the acceptance speeches. Some of the most famous lines actors have said off the cuff in their acceptance speeches are still phrases that we use today in pop culture (“You like me! You really like me!”)! So in honor of the 85th Annual Academy Awards, I’ve compiled some of the most memorable speeches from over the years to share with you! Enjoy!

Tom Hanks | Best Actor for Philadelphia

Sandra Bullock | Best Actress for The Blind Side

Angelina Jolie | Best Supporting Actress for Girl, Interrupted
