Women's Award Acceptance Speeches

I've heard lots of folks talking about Cate Blanchett's speech at the Oscars where she points out that films with women at the center do make money.  I found her comment rather mild, and yet from the reactions on the faces of women in the audience and among my friends, you'd think she has issued a Pussy Riot manifesto.

Lupita Nyong'o gave a most amazing speech, not at the Oscars which was emotional and sweet, but her speech at the Essence Magazine Black Women in Hollywood event where she talks about beauty.
