This Sunday night is the 95th Academy Awards. We’re all hoping that this year’s show will clock in under the 3 hour mark, but I don’t have a lot of confidence. Mostly because of the long speeches.

But who has done it right? What has been the shortest Oscars speech ever?
That would be Rita Moreno who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in West Side Story back in 1962. Got up on stage and her speech was no more than 13 seconds saying, “I can’t believe it! Good Lord! I leave you with that.” Here’s video of it.
More of this on Sunday night please!
