The Oscars may have just made acceptance speeches much better

If you’ve watched the Oscars, you’ve seen it: the hurried speech, the actor trying to thank every loved one, agent, producer, cast and crew member, all while trying to be funny and meaningful in the space of 45 seconds before the music cuts them off. Now the Academy has made a request in advance from the nominees — and it could make the show so much more exciting.


“I’m still kind of speechless about it! I couldn’t stop laughing. I wasn’t expecting it– I so was not expecting this, genuinely. I was really hoping that the film would be nominated, and Tom [McCarthy] and Josh [Singer], and I’m so glad all of that happened and it feels like that was right, like everything was right in the world. But I didn’t know when the nominations were happening, I wasn’t really thinking about it. So I got a call at quarter to six in the morning from my publicist– which has never happened. And I thought, ‘Oh no, I’ve done something!’ or ‘Something’s happened.’ And I saw all these texts and I thought, ‘Something horrible has happened in the world, something *really* bad.’ And then I saw, ‘Oscars,’ ‘Congratulations,’ and still I thought, ‘Oh, yay! The film got nominated, yay!’ And then I saw, ‘Congratulations on your personal nomination!’ And I was like, ‘WHAT??? WHAT?!’ And then yes, I started laughing. I will never forget laying in a hotel room in LA by myself in bed at six o'clock in the morning laughing my head off just trying to comprehend it.  It’s such an honor.“
