Most memorable moments from award show speeches
Roger Ross Williams, Elinor Burkett
While it wasn't a Kanye West-Taylor Swift-style speech interruption at the 2010 Oscars ceremony, the night's awkward speech moment turned out to have an equally entertaining backstory. When director Roger Ross Williams was accepting the award for Best Documentary Short for "Music by Prudence," he didn't make it far before a woman joined him at the microphone, taking over the speech as Williams stood by awkwardly. The co-speech giver was Elinor Burkett, producer on the film and fellow Oscar winner who had a creative falling out with Williams, which prevented the two from discussing how exactly they'd accept the award if their film won. What was Burkett's explanation for being late to the stage? "His mother took her cane and blocked me. So I couldn't get up there very fast."
