The Very Inspiring Hilary Swank Best Actress Speech

After winning her 1st of 2nd Best Actress Oscar Award in the year 2000, Hillary Swank gave a pretty remarkable acceptance speech. She gave the typical but genuine thanks to directors, screenwriters, and her acting coach, who was very emotional. Then she showed her deep appreciation to her mother, thanking her saying “It looks like living out of our car was worth it!” True story.

Hillary Swank ended her inspiring speech by thanking Brandon Teena, who the film for which she won the award for, called Boy Don’t Cry, was based on. “I want to thank Brandon Tina for being such an inspiration to us all. His legacy lives on through our movie, to remind us to always be ourselves. To follow our hearts. To not conform. I pray for the day when we not only accept our differences, but we actually celebrate our diversity.”
