1997 Best Supporting Actor winner Cuba Gooding Jr. got in 30 seconds of speech before he was played out by the music. The Jerry Maguire star then spent the next minute-and-a-half yelling over the increasingly loud music: "We made the movie! Everybody involved in the movie, I love you! Oh my goodness! Here we are! I love you [inaudible]! I love you [inaudible] ! I love you! I love you all! Cameron Crowe! James L. Brooks! James L. Brooks, I love you! Everybody who was involved with this, I love you! I love you! I love you!" He then placed his Oscar on the ground, jumped up and let out a giant "Whooo!" His joy was clearly infectious, as the audience gave the actor a standing ovation.
