For those of us who are hooked on watching the Academy Awards, because we love movies, the glitz of Hollywood, or just because it is a time-honored tradition, here follow the best ‘award-winning’ quotes from last night’s Oscars.
And the Oscar for Best, Most Sincere, and Inspired Quotes goes to:
For the Moms …
“I would like to thank what this film is about for me which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from. Those moms and parents never get thanked.” – Sandra Bullock, after winning the award for best actress.
For the Women and Men in the Military …
“I’d just like to dedicate this to the women and men in the military who risk their lives on a daily basis in Iraq and Afghanistan and around the world. And may they come home safe.” – Kathryn Bigelow, upon winning the Oscar for best director.
For Mom and Dad and groovy professions …
“Thank you, Mom and Dad, for turning me on to such a groovy profession. Oh, my dad and my mom, they loved show biz so much. … I feel an extension of them. You know, this … is honoring them as much as it is me.” – Jeff Bridges, after winning the Oscar for best actor.
For a shiny dose of inspiration …
“What we did with Avatar, if you really look at it, we took things that are out there in the world every day, we just made them bigger, shinier. … But all our inspiration comes from the real world. So if you really look, you can see all those things around you, and I would just encourage people to get out and look for it.” – Joe Letteri, after winning the award for achievement in visual effects.
For making it real … and for Sidney, too …
“I would like to thank the Academy for showing that it can be about the performance and not the politics. … Thank you so much to my amazing husband, Sidney. Thank you for showing me that sometimes you have to forgo doing what’s popular in order to do what’s right. And baby, you were so right.” – MoNique, after winning the Oscar for best supporting actress.
For the precious dream …
“This is for everybody who works on the dream every day: precious boys and girls everywhere.” – Geoffrey Fletcher, after winning the best adapted screenplay award for “Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire.”
For the possibilities …
“Never did I dream that making a flip book out of my third-grade math book would lead to this.” – Pete Docter, accepting the best animated feature film award for “Up.”
