The Academy Awards are the highlight of the year of cinephiles. It's when the Academy honors those they see as the absolute best of the best. To even receive a nomination is a staggering accomplishment. Naturally, when the stakes are that high, and you're up on the stage accepting the award... you may not be thinking clearly. For those poor people it's traumatic, for viewers at home it's a moment to relive on YouTube forever.

Most of these weird oscar acceptance speeches had only the best intentions. Whether they decided to go too political; to express a deep, deep love for a family member; or to quote the movie for which they won, it surely all sounded good in their heads. These Oscar speech fails come from some of the best and brightest in the industry - after all, everyone has an off day.

These are the strangest, most cringeworthy, most awkward, and all-around worst Oscar speeches in Academy Awards history. Vote up the weirdest of the weird below!
