Top Acceptance Speeches in Six Words

sixwordacceptancespeech
Awards season follows hot on the heels of the holiday season, and with it just as many sparkles and shiny baubles. When their names are called, some winners read from a card, some make political statements, and some trip and fall on their way up onto the stage. And almost all of the speeches could be a whole lot shorter. The perfect length could be about, say… Six Words.

For SixContest #46, we asked you to write your Six-Word acceptance speeches, and your responses came in droves. You showed us gratitude, egoism, and disbelief. Here are a few of our favorite six-word speeches:

6. “I owe this all to plagiarism.” —BanjoDan

5. “Oscar is my favorite naked man”. —dani333

4. “My crystal balls couldn’t predict this!” —oopsalittle

3. “Here so I don’t get fined.” —@darth (via Twitter)

2. “This makes up for a lot.” —TeaTopper

And our favorite Six-Word Acceptance Speech:

1. I faked it… I maked it. —ADHDean

Congratulations to ADHDean, and thanks to everyone who joined in the fun! Whether in our SixContests, on FacebookInstagramTwitterTumblr or at sixwordmemoirs.com—keep on Sixing!
