The Meat Parade and Other Tales of Extraordinary Madness

"I hate just about everyone who watches this goddamn meat parade. The Help was horseshit. Fuck you all. Hi Mom. Goodnight." - Octavia Spencer, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"I fucked all the women. And most of the men. Thank you." - Jean Dujardin, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"Who knew being a cunt could get you this far?" - Meryl Streep (as Margaret Thatcher), 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"I've worked with Scorsese, Allen, and Spielberg, but all those twerps never did nothin' for me. Thank you Stephen Daldry! You're the best thing since Bergman." - Max von Sydow, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"I really wanted to capture the feeling of being a wannabe artist. I want to thank all of you for inspiring me. I think I made a movie that can make us all proud." - Woody Allen, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and totally righteous dinosaurs reigned supreme. And God said, 'Let there be magic hour,' and there was. I saw that the light was good and separated the light from the darkness. Then it meant something." - Terrence Malick, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech

"Wait... you really watched my film? Jesus... I mean... Who knew? You guys actually watch all these films? Man... I really underestimated you guys. I mean... Wow! I never thought a film about a dance... You didn't know it was about Pina Bausch? Well yeah... it WAS in 3-D and I guess I understand how it sounds like an alcoholic beverage one might order in an American bar. Is that how you vote? Oh. [music plays]" - Wim Wenders, 2012 Academy Award acceptance speech
