Michael Moore Oscar Speech

About Michael Moore's Oscar Speech

Can we agree that Michael Moore's Oscar speech when he won Bowling for Columbine was the most obnoxious Oscar speech ever? I think the guy has talent and his documentaries are interesting. But there is a place for everything. Using your time during the Academy Awards to get on a soapbox is not the place.

Jack Palance Oscar Speech

The Famous Jack Palance Oscar Speech

The Jack Palance Oscar speech has become one of the most famous moments in the history of the Oscars. It is definitely one of my favorite Oscar speeches. Palance won his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in City Slickers. I'm not giving it away if you haven't seen it, but you've got to watch the Oscar speech and performance by Jack Palance. It's hard to believe that he has died. He seemed invincible. Rest in peace, Jack.
