Happy Monday everyone!
Yesterday the husband and I watched the 86th annual Academy Awards. I for one love watching the red carpet live to see the dresses and all, then might watch the Oscars–this year was no different. Ellen Degeneres hosted keeping it funny like her usual self, and then we’d switch back and forth to watch the premier of The Voice.
In my opinion, all the “trending” actors & actress’ were spot on with their choice for outfits and accessories, no major blunders–accept for Jennifer Lawrence falling–once again. And a list of best dressed can be found on a million places online along with a list of winners for the night–I won’t be critiquing that.
The acceptance speeches were what blew me away. They were inspirational, genuine, and perfectly delivered. While I don’t look up to celebrities as heroes or role models, I will say they might have done a thing or two right in order to be successful and be where they are today. Here are my top favorite acceptance speech quotes from Oscar 2014 winners. Moral of the post–Believe in yourself!
1. Lupita Nyong’o |
When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.”
2. Matthew McConaughey | Thanked God, his family and his hero–who is himself.
My hero’s always 10 years away–I’m never going to attain that. That keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing.”
3. Cate Blanchette |
Perhaps those of us in the industry clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche — they are not. Audiences want to see them, and they make money. The world is round, people!”
4. Kristen & Robert Lopez |
This song was inspired by our love for you [their girls], and hope you never let fear or shame keep you from celebrating the unique people that you are.”

That’s all for today. Have a wonderful Monday and week!
