From touching tributes to Halle Berry’s historic win (above) and some comedic gems, we just never know what to expect when our favorite stars walk up to accept their Oscars!
“And the Oscar goes to…” is one phrase that pretty much every actor works throughout their lifetime to hear and we can’t wait to see what speeches they’ll bring this year!
In honor of the big ceremony on Sunday, we've gathered up some of our favorite Oscar speeches and you can check them out… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Kate Winslet, Best Actress for The Reader, 2009
Who could forget this absolutely adorbz speech?! This one definitely made our list for one of the best shout out moments in Oscar history! Her dad beaming with pride was too cute for words.
Cuba Gooding Jr., Best Supporting Actor for Jerry Maguire, 1996
And some more shout outs! Literally! Cuba got carried away with his Oscar speech back in '96, but we can't say we blame him! Leaving someone out of an acceptance speech can come back to haunt you! Ha!
Cher, Best Actress for Moonstruck, 1987
She's a gracious queen. Do we even need to explain why this speech is one of our ultimate Oscar faves?! And that dress — SO epic!
Meryl Streep, Best Actress for The Iron Lady, 2012
Mary Meryl, 30 years after her last Oscar victory, she finally won again last year for her role in The Iron Lady! Talk about an award well-deserved!
Angelina Jolie, Best Supporting Actress for Girl, Interrupted, 2000
Oh, and then there was that time back in 2000 when Angelina creepily(?) professed her love for her brother and pretty much skeeved everyone out!
Adrien Brody, Best Actor for The Pianist, 2003
Ah! That now-unforgettable kiss! In '03, Adrien did what most people would do after nabbing an Oscar — grab Halle Berry's face and suck it off! As if winning the golden statue wasn't enough of a victory… !
Sandra Bullock, Best Actress for The Blind Side, 2010
Sandra received her first Academy Award and delivered a speech that was not only touching, but funny, as well! She was adorable with her poise and praise of her fellow nominees!
