Halle Berry. She nearly lost it just going up to receive her award and was a total emotional mess during her acceptance speech.
Marlon Brando. He didn’t actually go up to accept his award. Scandal! Instead he used his win to make a political statement. Do you think it was effective?
Heath Ledger. Sadly the actor passed away before the awards show so his family went on his behalf. It was a beautiful moment that had the entire audience in tears.
Jennifer Lawrence. Who can forget her epic fall on the way to pick up her award? The first of many falls she would own at award shows!
Melissa Leo. The actress famously cursed during her speech which the show had to bleep out. Hilarious and slightly offensive but overall very memorable.
Anna Paquin. At only eleven years old she won an Oscar for her first role in a movie. Watch her in total shock before she starts her acceptance speech.
Sally Field. We will never forget her yelling, “You like me!” during her speech. One of the most iconic speeches ever. We really do like you Sally!
