Hypothetical scenario: you are a famous actor and you have just been informed that you have been nominated for an Academy Award so now, aside from deciding who is going to "dress" you, an acceptance speech has to be prepared, just in case you score the "big one". What would you say? Who would you thank? Who would you leave out?

I would thank all those that helped me get there, those that worked with me, and those that stood by me. As far as who would I leave out, it would all depend. This is a good discussion it sure makes one think, what if. Right Have a great day Paula. Hugs MaryLynn

Thank you, the more you add the more complicated it gets when you have to try and remember everyone. Why not just make it simple and to the point, and not so long winded. LOL

I'd thank all of those who supported me, but most of all I would thank all of those that doubted me and said I wouldnt make it, for giving me the push I needed to prove them wrong

"You like me, you really, really like me." Oops that was done already by Sally Field. I've been dreaming of winning this Oscar ever since I was a little girl, and always knew that one day, without a doubt, I would actually be standing here holding this magnificent award. But being up here in reality is so different from what I thought it would be...it's better than I can ever have imagined. I wish to thank the director who was willing to give me a chance for my role as I wasn't his first choice. I also wish to thank the scriptwriter for making the character come alive, the entire cast and crew who if I named them all I'd be standing here for at least an hour...but you know who you are. And most of all I wish to thank the Academy for voting for me. Thank you, thank you thank you.

Thank you so much for this very treasured award. I want to say thank you to all the people who had a part in this project. My fellow actors, the director, the producer, the editors, the stunt men, the wardrobe specialists, the writers, camera crews, and everyone else involved. Nothing can ever be achieved with excellence without a combined team effort and I am very thankful for such a wonderful team of people to work with. I also want to thank my family, friends, and most of all God who put me on the path of this project and gave me the wisdom and ability to do my best job possible. Thank you again. Bow, bow, smile, smile, wave, wave, throw a kiss (all right I guess it's time to get off the stage). Thank you for such a fun question.
