How long was the shortest speech in Oscar history?

  • 1 word
  • 2 words correct

    "Thank you" was all Patty Duke had to say when winning her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in The Miracle Worker. We aren't really sure if anyone will beat that today unless you come back with a "Thanks" or solid "yaaaaasssssss!" Will see what Leo feels like doing when he (God willing) finally wins an Oscar but even if he doesn't we expect him to gracefully bear through it. Source: MentalFloss
