Question of the Week: Oscar, Star, Handprints, or a Bullet In the Head?

Admit it. At one point or another you’ve thought out your Academy Award acceptance speech. You’ve secretly wanted your name on the Walk of Fame. And even though its a cheesy tourist thing to do, you’ve also tried fitting your hands into the cement castings in front of the Chinese Theatre.

This week’s question is multi-choice: Of the above kudos, plus a couple other options including a fill in the blank, how would you like your past, current, or future contributions to showbiz be remembered?

Please leave your acceptance speech, or any other acknowledgement you’d prefer, in the comments.

  1. Hmm…as amusing as it would be to be the first screenwriter whose hand- and footprints are at the Chinese, I think I have to go with the classic: Oscar. I don’t really think much of award ceremonies, but as long as they keep on having them I would not be averse to being recognized by one.

  2. Wow, this is really a big honor… I must admit this is not the academy’s most dumb decision, I mean Kevin Costner winning for best director in 1990 instead of Marty Scorsece… I mean for crying out loud… But what done is done, you bunch of JLo loving morons… The oscar has some benefits, I speak ofcourse of the best pickup line of all time: “Hey babe, wanna come to my place and check out my oscar?”

  5. I just want to be remembered in the same breath as David Lynch, Alejandro Jodorowsky, E. Elias Merhige (back when he was doing “Begotten”-type films)…massive cult directors who’s work nobody understands but who everybody from Marilyn Manson to the “Film school geek” wants to work with!

  6. Is it churlish to say that the best acknowledgment is that your work is remembered?

    Just to have a performance or a film that is revisited, time and time again, because it connect to the human condition.

    Awards are nice. Very nice. But mostly those stuffy bodies get it wrong [or half-right, at best].

    The nicest way to be remembered is to be remembered at all and an Oscar doesn’t necessarily do that.

  7. It doesn’t need to be a smal golden statue or a handprint on the ground. I would probably want to be remembered by some polemic film I did and obviously something that came out from my head.

  8. Winning Oscars and countless awards would be nice but I would prefer being remembered for my work(diverse characters (good, bad or ambiguous))and people enjoying what I do. To me,that would give me an honor, the greatest I’d ever had.

  9. If you ask me, just seeing people enjoy your work would be enough. Smiles are best, but anything would do, just having done something which made someone happy. That said, I do think a gold statue would look just fantastic on my mantle.
