If you’re a lucky Oscar winner, the speech-making clock starts to tick as soon as you’ve recovered from hearing your name.
Winners have about 60 seconds to accept a minor award and two minutes to give thanks for a major one, then the conductor starts to wave his baton. So what should a major movie star say in such a high-pressure situation?
Surely Celebritology readers have some ideas.
