Sally Field finds out the Academy likes her - Oscar History (Video)

01/11/2013 by OnTheRedCarpet.com Staff

Throughout this Oscar season, we are looking back at some of the great moments in Oscar history. At the 57th Oscars on March 25, 1985, actress Sally Field learned the Academy liked her.

The actress, who is nominated for an Oscar this year for "Lincoln," won her second Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in "Places in the Heart" in 1985 and went on to deliver one of the most misquoted statements in pop culture history.

Most quote Field as telling the members of the Oscar audience that night, "You like me, you really like me."

Field, who won her first Oscar in 1980 for her role in "Norma Rae," actually said, "You like me, right now, you like me!"

The actress explained her second win meant more to her.

"This means so much more to me this time, I don't know why. I think the first time I hardly felt it because it was all so new," Field said at the podium. "But I want to say thank you to you. I haven't had an orthodox career. And I've wanted more than anything to have your respect."

"The first time I didn't feel it," she added. "But this time I feel it. And I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!"

Actor Albert Brooks parodied the speech on Twitter on Jan. 24, 2012, when he found out he wasn't nominated for an Oscar for his role in "Drive."

"And to the Academy: 'You don't like me. You really don't like me,'" the traditionally comedic actor wrote on his Twitter page.
