TOP FIVE MOST UNFORGETTABLE OSCAR MOMENTS

TOP 5 MOST UNFORGETTABLE OSCAR MOMENT
"ROBERTO BENIGNI GOES WILD"


The Italian actor and director couldn't just walk up on stage and give humble, teary-eyed thanks when his "Life Is Beautiful" won the Oscar for best foreign-language film. Instead, he leaped from one seat back to another, whipping the audience into a frenzy, before hopping up the steps and giving presenter Sophia Loren a long, tight bear hug.

"BJORK'S SWAN DRESS"

This is not just one of the most unforgettable but also one of the craziest Oscar Moments of all time. Bjork dazzled and bedeviled everyone when she showed up at the planet's most-watched red carpet in a white, fluffy gown with a swan's head draped around her neck. (The Icelandic singer and actress was nominated for best original song for "I've Seen It All" from Lars von Trier's "Dancer in the Dark.") It is arguably the most famous outfit ever worn to the Oscars. It inspired many a Halloween costume.

"JACK PALACE DOES PUSH UPS"

Palance already had been nominated for an Oscar twice before, both for best supporting actor, for 1952's "Sudden Fear" and 1953's "Shane." Four decades later, when he finally won the award for the comedy "City Slickers," he proved he was just as virile as ever at 72. In the middle of a raunchy acceptance speech, in which he was explaining how reluctant producers can be to cast older actors, Palance stepped away from the podium, dropped to the stage and did a series of one-armed push-ups. Who wouldn't hire him?

TOP 2 MOST UNFORGETTABLE OSCAR MOMENT
"HALLE BERRY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH"

Being the first black woman to receive a best actress award, Halle Berry's emotional acceptance speech is very understandable. Overcome with joy and gratitude, a visibly shaken Halle Berry motions for the orchestra to give her more time to make her inspiring speech - "This moment is so much bigger than me" - after becoming the first African-American to win Best Actress in 2002 for her performance in "Monster's Ball". And also another unforgettable moment with Halle Berry is when she was kissed by Surprised by Adrien Brody, the youngest Best Actor winner in Oscar history when he took home the prize in 2002 for his work in The Pianist. To rub it in to all the old farts in the audience (I'm looking at you, Jack), Adrien Brody accepted his statue and proceeded to do what every man in America only fantasized - laying a big one on Halley Berry.

THE MOST UNFORGETTABLE OSCAR MOMENT
"MARLON BRANDO OSCAR AWARD REFUSAL"

Having an award in Oscar is what every celebrity is dreaming about that's why it is a big surprise that God Father Marlon Brando refused to received it. Brando won best actor for his iconic portrayal of Don Corleone in "The Godfather." But he refused to accept the award, and instead sent a woman who said she was an Apache named Sacheen Littlefeather to speak on his behalf. Brando was protesting what he believed to be stereotypical treatment of Native Americans in the film industry. Littlefeather's speech drew a mixture of applause and boos, as well as questions about whether she was truly a Native American herself.
