8 Speech Highlights From Last Night's Oscar Awards

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The Oscar Awards are a four-plus hour time commitment (seven-plus hours if you count the red carpet which, of course, we do). We sat through all the musical acts, all the gags, all the John Travolta weirdness, and all the commercials to bring you the very best speech moments of the night. Enjoy classy broads like Julianne Moore and Patricia Arquette, Eddie Redmayne in tears, and much, much more.
