Oscars inspiration

As I write the Academy Awards are being held in Los Angeles awarding Oscars to those who have excelled in artistic and technical merit in recent movies.

The recipients’ thank you speeches are much of a muchness with some notable exceptions including Matthew McConaughey’s 2015 acceptance speech when awarded the Best Actor Oscar for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.
