In more than 10 years of Oscar acceptance speeches, the Academy Award-winning actress has been thanked more than anyone – even the Almighty.
According to Slate.com, Oscar acceptance speeches range the gamut from short and sweet (Morgan Freeman gave a 32-second thank you) to long speeches filled with all-out gushing.
The one constant during the last 12 years of speeches analyzed by Slate? God was thanked a lot – but the big man upstairs came in second to Hollywood icon Meryl Streep. Streep, 4 – God, 3.
Other big name celebs thanked more than once by Oscar acceptors included Oprah Winfrey and Sidney Poitier. And then there’s the actor’s family and blah blah blah.
