The Academy Awards have had more than a fair share of boring speeches.
But every once in a while, the audience is treated to a slice of weird that will become more memorable than the award itself.
Angelina Jolie won for Best Supporting Actress in 2000 and promptly claimed, “I’m so in love with my brother right now.” Not “I love my brother,” but rather that she’s “so in love” with him. Try and figure that one out without cringing.
Sally Field inspired years of narcissistic impressions after winning in 1985 for “Places in the Heart” and declaring to the audience, “You like me! Right now you really like me!” And we thought Kanye was good at self promotion.
Marlon Brando decided to protest the 1973 Oscars due to the Academy’s representation of Native Americans. But instead of just boycotting the Awards like George C. Scott had done two years earlier, Brando sent a Native American activist in full Apache dress to formally protest the treatment of American Indians in the film industry.
Vote for the weirdest Oscar acceptance speech of all time!
