Oscar Thank You Speeches Montage Video - Thankful Oscars
Ah yes, the infamous thank you speech. A very important part of the Academy Awards legacy, wouldn't you say? This year the producers of the Oscars are trying to get winners to minimize the length of their speeches so that they can keep the show from getting boring. But before we see this year's thank yous, I've got a fun video to share with you this Oscar weekend. It comes from our friends at Vulture (via In Contention) and is a "Hypnotic Montage of Oscar Thank-Yous" that, in 73 seconds, runs through a whole bunch of thank you speeches, but only just the names. This should definitely put you in the Oscar mood! Watch this below.
In regards to our Oscar coverage here on FS, both Ethan (@Ethan_Anderton) and I (@firstshowing) will be "live Tweeting" during the Oscar ceremony on Sunday (starts at 5PM PT / 8PM ET), and you can follow us at the links provided. Besides that, we'll have a full winners chart updated live on the front page. Back to this video, I love that Morgan Freeman's voice stands out the most in this (at least in the intro). As in, when he says something, you instantly know it's him. Maybe it comes from all those Visa commercials I saw during the Olympics. I also love that Freeman ends with "everybody." Who are you rooting for?
