1分鐘得獎感言


生活中不少素材都可以拿來學

Most Unforgettable 無與倫比的第一次
得獎者:Lupita Nyong'o
獎項: 第86屆奧斯卡最佳女配角
電影:《自由之心》(12 Years a Slave)
第一次出演大銀幕的Lupita Nyong'o,憑著電影《自由之心》榮獲奧斯卡最佳女配角,Nyong'o感謝導演Steve McQueen給當時還是學生的她演出機會;最後告訴每個孩子,無論你是誰,都有機會讓夢想成真,整段感言真摯動人。
Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is thanks to so much pain in someone else’s. And so I want to salute the spirit of Patsey for her guidance. And for Solomon, thank you for telling her story and your own. Steve McQueen, you charge everything you fashion with a breath of your own spirit. Thank you so much for putting me in this position. This has been the joy of my life. I’m certain that the dead are standing about you and watching and they are grateful and so am I.

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. - Lupita Nyong'o

Most Informative 得獎不忘愛地球
得獎者:Leonardo DiCaprio
獎項:第88屆奧斯卡最佳男主角
電影:《神鬼獵人》(The Revenant)
等了20年,六次提名奧斯卡男主角,Leonardo DiCaprio在2016年才終於拿下獎座。身為環境人士的他,不忘在得獎感言宣導全球暖化議題,他要大家正視全球暖化,不能把地球視為理所當然。
 I just want to say this: Making The Revenant was about man's relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

Climate change is real, it is happening right now. - Leonardo DiCaprio
全球暖化議題是真的,而且正在發生。

note:
we collectively felt that…我們都覺得…
to stop procrastinating 停止拖延
to speak for … 為…發聲
underprivileged people 底層的人們 
be drown out by…被…淹沒
the politics of greed 貪婪的政治
to take sth. for granted 把sth視為理所當然

Most inspirational 做自己的英雄
得獎者:Matthew McConaughey
獎項:第86屆奧斯卡最佳男主角
電影:《藥命俱樂部》(Dallas Buyers Club)
15歲那年,有人問McConaughey誰是他的英雄,他回答十年後的自己。過了十年,25歲了,那個人再次問他:「你成為英雄了嗎?」他說:「我離英雄兩個字,還差得遠。」他認為自己的英雄永遠會是十年之後的自己,他永遠不會超越那個英雄,這也是他前進的目標。
To my hero, that’s who I chase. Now when I was 15 years old, I had a very important person in my life come to me and say, “Who is your hero?” And I said I don’t know. I gotta think about that. Give me a couple of weeks. I came back two weeks later, this person came up and said “Who’s your hero?” And so I thought about it and I said you know who it is, it’s me in 10 years. So I turn 25, 10 years later that same person came to me and goes “so are you a hero?” And I was like, not even close. No, no, no. She said “Why?” I said because my hero is me at 35. So you see every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero is always 10 years away. I’m never going to beat my hero. I’m not going to obtain that, I know I’m not. And that’s just fine with me because that keeps me with somebody to keep on chasing.
So, to any of us, whatever those things are, whatever that is we look up to, whatever it is we look forward to, and whoever it is we are chasing to that I say amen. To that I say alright, alright, alright. And to that I say just keep living huh.

Every day, every week, every month and every year of my life, my hero is always 10 years away. - Matthew McConaughey
之後的每一天、每一週、每一個月、每一年,我這輩子的英雄都會是「10年後的那個我」。

note:
a couple of 一些
to keep on 繼續
to look up to sb. 敬重sb.
amen = alright 表示認同的意思

Most Touching 這個獎,獻給每個女人
得獎者:Frances McDormand
獎項:第90屆奧斯卡最佳女主角
電影:《意外》(Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri)
Frances McDormand把獎項獻給所有女性,她請在場的女性演員、製作人、編劇等電影工作人起身接受榮耀。得獎感言最後她留下兩個字:Inclusion Rider,這其實是演員談合約時可以額外談的「包容性附加條款」,主要是希望電影保留原始劇本的真實性,例如故事歷史背景、不同種族、膚色的角色遵照原始劇本呈現,也保障女性、黑人、亞洲人、同性戀獲得平等的工作機會。
I want to get some perspective. If I may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight, the actors—Meryl, if you do it, everybody else will, c'mon—the filmmakers, the producers, the directors, the writers, the cinematographer, the composers, the songwriters, the designers. C'mon! Okay, look around everybody. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best, and we'll tell you all about them. I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: Inclusion Rider.

If I fall over, pick me up cause I've got some things to say. - Frances McDormand
如果我摔倒了,一定要扶我起來,因為我有話要說。

nominee 被提名人
