Monday Movie Meme

It's time for The Monday Movie Meme hosted by The Bumbles Blog, and what better time to discuss movies than the day after the Academy Awards!

This week's FEATURE PRESENTATION...
Memorable Oscar Moments...

One that stands out in my memory was when Sally Fields won the Oscar for Best Actress in 1985 for the movie Places in the Heart. I couldn't embed the video, but here is the link if you want to watch.

The most memorable part of her speech: "I haven't had an orthodox career, and I've wanted more than anything to have your respect. The first time I didn't feel it, but this time I feel it, and I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!" (Quote Credit) (Image Credit)

Another memorable moment for me was Billy Crystal's opening monologue in 1992. Again, I couldn't embed the video, but here is the link.
Billy Crystal entered as "Hannibal Lecter" brought in by two "guards" dressed in white. He went out to the audience to speak to Anthony Hopkins and said he would like to "have him for dinner." I really think Billy Crystal did a great job with the Oscars every year he hosted. (Image Credit)

Sally sure got our attention!

I do think that the host makes or breaks an awards show. There is always 1 or 2 great moments from a speech - but you need an entertaining host to keep your mind off of all the standard fare in between.
