The 25 Weirdest Oscar Speeches

6. Alfred Hitchcock, Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award (1968)

Watch The Speech

Hitch was known as a strange guy, and if you've seen any of his films, that shouldn't surprise you. It takes a particularly peculiar person to approach the podium after a fellow director lavishes you with praise for two minutes, and say only, "Thank you."

This would've also been the most baller Oscar acceptance of all time if he hadn't turned back and added a final, "Indeed," before leaving the stage.
