Just for fun, since the Academy Awards are tomorrow night, I thought I’d share a video clip of Angelina Jolie’s Oscar acceptance speech when she won for Best Supporting Actress in 2000 for her role in Girl, Interrupted.
Naturally there will always be people who will have something snarky to say about Angelina and James but I loved her speech. She was so genuinely surprised by her win and she was so full of emotion for everyone that it was a wonderful, natural, real thank you speech.
I do apologize for one thing, the audio is not properly synched to the video and frankly that drives me a little nuts, but it was the only one I could find right now. Hopefully we’ll get to see her do another acceptance speech on Sunday night, but if not, at least we know she did win that year and it was definitely well-deserved!
