And the Winner Is...Mom! Here's a Video of Actors Thanking Their Moms After Winning an Oscar

Is there really a better way to show your mom you care than to give her a shout out while accepting an Oscar?

The short answer is, "Of course, dummy."

We should probably be acknowledging our mothers' humongous contribution to our creative success, as well as, like -- our existence -- on a daily basis by letting her know we care, hanging out with her, and not screening her calls. (Seriously, stop doing that, you guys.) However, since it was Mother's Day yesterday, it seems fitting to share this compilation of actors thanking their mothers during their Oscar acceptance speeches, because, hey, nobody is more proud of all of your accomplishments, big or small, than dear ol' mom!

And maybe your "mom" isn't your mom at all. Maybe she or he is your favorite teacher, your grandmother, or your sweet next door neighbor. (I call my dad my "special mommy". He rolls his eyes when I say it, but deep down I think he likes it.) Whoever nurtured, cared for, and supported us through it all deserves a little something special once in a while -- like a heartfelt acknowledgement during one of the biggest televised award shows in the world. (I mean, if the opportunity arises.)
