Love them or hate them, speeches are an integral part of the Oscar telecast each year. Winners get to celebrate their victory by thanking all those who helped get them there. It's usually a race against the clock to get all the names in.
For the viewers at home, the laundry list of names have no meaning or weight to us. Maybe one day, we'll get to thank Harvey Weinstein. In the meantime, it is always nice to hear inspirational stories or advice from those on stage. And a little bit of humor can go a long way.
