touching oscar speeches that honor moms

touching oscar speeches that honor moms

because beautiful words are always welcome, celebrities often honor their mother in acceptance speeches. these are some of the most touching speeches celebrities made to honor their mother!

jared leto, 2014

“in 1971, in bossier city louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. she was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. she encouraged here kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. that girl was my mother and she’s here tonight. I just want to say that I love you mom, thank you for teaching me to dream.”

 angelina jolie, 2013

“[my mother] drove me to every audition and she would wait in the car for hours. always make me feel really good all the times I didn't get the job, and when I did we would jump up and down and scream and yell like little girls. she wasn't really the best critic since she never had anything unkind to say, but she did give me love and confidence and, above all, she was very clear that nothing would mean anything if I didn't live a life of use to others… I will do as my mother asked, and I will do the best I can with this life to be of use. and to stand here today means that I did as she asked, and if she were alive she'd be very proud. so thank you for that.”

sandra bullock, 2010

“I would like to thank what this film was 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. I, in particular, failed to thank one. so...if I can take this moment to thank helga b. for not letting me ride in cars with boys till I was eighteen, 'cause she was right; I would've done what she said I was gonna do. for making me practice every day when I got home, piano, ballet, whatever it is I wanted to be… and for reminding her daughters that there's no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual orientation, that makes us better than anyone else. we are all deserving of love.”

charlize theron, 2004

"... and my mom. you’ve sacrificed so much for me to be able to live here and make my dreams come true, and there are no words to describe how much I love you.”

philip seymour hoffman, 2005

"my mom's name is marilyn o'connor, and she's here tonight. and I'd like if you see her tonight to congratulate her, because she brought up four kids alone and she deserves a congratulations for that… and she took me to my first play and she stayed up with me and watched the ncaa final four, and... her passions became my passions... be proud, mom, because I'm proud of you, and we're here tonight and it's so good. thank you.”

tom hooper, 2011

“I know there's been a lot of thanking of mums, but this is slightly different because my mum in 2007 was invited by some australian friends—she's australian—in london to a fringe theater play reading of an unproduced, unrehearsed play called the king's speech. now she's never been invited to a play reading in her entire life before. she almost didn't go because it didn't sound exactly promising, but thank god she did because she came home, rang me up and said, ‘tom, I think I found your next film.’ so with this tonight, I honor you. and the moral of the story is: listen to your mother.”

matthew mccogaughey, 2014

“to my mother who’s here tonight, who taught me and my two older brothers—demanded—that we respect ourselves, and what we in turn learned was then we were better able to respect others. thank you for that, mama.”
