Oscar Speeches: Coen, Joel–Fargo

Upon winning the Original Screenplay Oscar, shared with his brother Ethan, Joel Coen said: “I would particularly like to thank Frances (McDormand), without whom the part wouldn’t have been written, the movie wouldn’t have been made, and we wouldn’t be standing here.”

Frances McDormand won the Best Actress Oscar for “Fargo,” and her speech was quite memorable.
