Let's face it: The best part of the Oscars usually has something to do with all those great, unexpected, emotional acceptance speeches – and while the Academy attempted to cut down the "thank yous" on stage by asking nominees to stick more to what the award meant to them, most ignored the new rule and, as always, used that time to thank the people who helped them get to that stage.

Watch them below and let us know which acceptance speech was your favorite…
