No way! You may never win again, so I say take your time! Say what you want to say!

Man Makes Oscar Speech Suggestions

A public relations exec has written an open letter in the Los Angeles times asking celebrities to keep their Oscar speeches short.

Howard Bragman tells nominees that it’s OK to “thank the one or two people who really made a difference in your life and this project.” He doesn’t think mentioning a long list of boring names is needed.

He suggests thanking agents, managers and publicists in person or with a nice gift. Bragman says the best thing all Oscar nominees can do is write a little speech ahead of time รณ no matter what their chances of winning. He says even if all they do is wind up giving the speech to the dog, they should be prepared.
