One of the keenly watched factors at the Oscars along with the extravagant dresses, jewelry and other accessories would be the acceptance speech of the stars who get the coveted golden statuette.

A perfect acceptance speech has the power to stay in the minds of the fans that would be quoted and remembered for the days to come even after the ceremony is over.

Normally the acceptance speech rallies around thanking all the people involved in the making of the movie and the family members for their unending support and the Almighty and so on.

However, speaking consultants are of the opinion that specific acknowledgements with lots of practice make an acceptance speech, a perfect and memorable one.

Here are some of the memorable acceptance speeches over the years during the Oscars:

Colin Firth [Best Actor for "The King's Speech"]

"I have a feeling my career has just peaked. My deepest thanks to the Academy. I'm afraid I have to warn you that I'm experiencing stirrings. Somewhere in the upper abdominals which are threatening to form themselves into dance moves. Joyous as they may be for me, it would be extremely problematic if they make it to my legs before I get off stage".

Natalie Portman [Best actress for "The Black Swan"]

"Thank you so much to the Academy this is insane and I truly sincerely wish that the prize tonight was to get to work with my fellow nominees. I'm so in awe of you. I'm so grateful to get to do the job that I do. I love it so much. I want to thank my parents, who are right there, first and foremost for giving me my life and for giving me the opportunity to work from such an early age and showing me everyday how to be a good human being by example".

A.R. Rahman [Best Original Score, "Slumdog Millionaire", 2009]

"Before coming, I was excited and terrified. The last time I felt like that was during my marriage. There's a dialogue from a Hindi film called "Mere paas ma hai," which means "I have nothing but I have a mother," so mother's here, her blessings are there with me. I am grateful for her to have come all the way. And I want to thank the Academy for being so kind, all the jury members".

James Cameron [Best director, "Titanic," 1998]

"I am the king of the world!".

Angelina Jolie [Best supporting actress, "Girl Interrupted,: 2000]

"I'm in shock. And I'm so in love with my brother right now, he just held me and said he loved me".

Grace Kelly [1954 Academy Awards]

"This is one night I wish I smoked and drank".

Let's wait for some remarkable speeches at the 84<sup>th Academy Awards on February 26.
