Gotta Be Better: Oscar Acceptance Speeches Get a Significant Change

Acceptance speeches at the Academy Awards range from newsworthy to hilarious to dreadfully dull as the winner thanks a list of people who we don’t know, but probably deserve to be recognized. This year, they can get that public recognition without being mentioned in the speech at all! The Academy announced the new scheme at the Oscar luncheon Monday.

All the nominees are being required to submit a list of whom they'd like to thank in the scroll, which will be displayed beneath their acceptance speech. That doesn't mean they can't give verbal shout-outs — it just means they have an excuse to use their moment for another purpose.

The nominees are on notice that they don’t have to worry about leaving someone out, and they are free to be more entertaining for the rest of us. Lat’s hope at least some of them take advantage of that opportunity. -via Uproxx
