Fisher Stevens

Best Feature Documentary, The Cove: Producer Fisher Stevens' Oscar acceptance speech:

“I just want to say that it was an honor to work on this film and to try to make an entertaining film that also tries to enlighten everybody. I have to thank Jim Clark, who financed the film and was also kind of the guiding wisdom behind the film. Paula DuPré Pesmen, my producing partner. And my hero, Ric O'Barry, who was not only a hero to this species, but to all species. And the man who came up with the idea, Louie Psihoyos.”


Best animated short film Logorama: Nicolas Schmerkin's Oscar acceptance speech:

“Good evening. It doesn't look like, but it's a French film. Sorry about the accent. I'm the producer of the film, so I have to thank the 3,000 non-official sponsors that appear in the film. And I have to assure them that no logos were harmed in the making of the project.

“This award has to be shared with the incredible people who made the film. All the team and especially, the three directors that are with us in the theater tonight: François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain. You can applaud them, the directors.

“Thanks for them. They have been working for a very long time on this film. It took, like, six years to make this 16 minutes, so I hope to come back here with a long feature film, in about 36 years. Thank you very much. Bon soir.”

Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart

Best Original Song: “The Weary Kind” from Crazy Heart. Composers T Bone Burnett and Ryan Bingham shared the award. Below is Bingham's 2010 Oscar acceptance speech:

“Thank you so much. I'd like to thank my wife Anna, I love you more than rainbows, baby. My uncle Clay, my band, Jack Whigham, Scott Cooper, the cast of Crazy Heart, Jeff [Bridges] and Maggie [Gyllenhaal] and Colin [Farrell] and Mr. Bob [Robert Duvall]. Everyone at Fox Searchlight and Mr. T Bone Burnett and Stephen Bruton. Thank you all so much.”

Pete Docter

Best Animated Feature Up: Pete Docter's Oscar Acceptance Speech

“Boy, never did I dream that making a flip book out of my third grade math book would lead to this. Boy. It's incredible being here, it's just me right now, but please picture this whole stage full of the most amazing cast and crew you've ever experienced. Jonas Rivera, producer. Bob Peterson, co-director. You guys should all be up here with me. Thanks so much to Disney and to Pixar Animation Studios for believing in this oddball film.

“It was an incredible, incredible adventure making this movie, but the heart of it came from home. And to our families, in my case, to my wonderful parents, they were so supportive. My kids, Nicholas and Ellie, and my amazing wife Amanda, you guys are the greatest adventure. Thank you.”

  1. Tracy Halton LA

    I voted Kathy Bates as one of the BEST DRESSED at the 82nd Oscars. I heard she was wearing Ellen Tracy? Anyway, Bates looked and shone like a star, and, has proven that glamour comes in ALL sizes.

  2. Lilly

    I agree, Kathy Bates looks stunning. This gown is perfect for her age, her hair and makeup are just perfect! loving her clutch too

  3. Arabia

    Wow! Kathy Bates looks wonderful! Great to see glamour on the bigs girls this season! I wonder who she is wearing?

  4. Jean

    Kathy Bates looks wonderful! Nice gown!

  5. Pete was an inspiration to us during the writing of our latest book, Innovate the Pixar Way. Pixar continues to shine as the world's “most creative corporate playground”…a land where Pixarians dream like children, believe in their playmates, dare to jump in the water and make waves, and unleash their childlike potential.

    Congratulations Pete!

  6. It's wonderful that this film won. Hopefully the Oscar victory will give it wider exposure and help put an end to this horrible instance of animal cruelty. It is also a beautifully structured film.
