The 25 Weirdest Oscar Speeches

25. Shirley MacLaine, Best Actress, Terms of Endearment (1983)

Watch The Speech

There was a distinct Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde vibe to MacLaine's speech following her win for Terms of Endearment. She began with a potent combination of her notorious brand of spiritualism/humility. After she finished showering praise on her co-stars and director, she told the world how she really felt, closing with, "I deserve this. Thank you."

MacLaine crowns herself.
