The 2011 Academy Awards are going down on Sunday night, which means that, as we speak, the frontrunners in every category are busy crafting their acceptance speeches and delivering them in the mirror, aiming for that perfect dose of “Who me? I never thought I’d win.” If Natalie Portman wins for Best Actress, as many people assume she is going to, will she continue her trend of drizzling vaguely inappropriate lines into her speeches? (“He totally wants to sleep with me!”) And if another favorite, Christian Bale, takes home Best Supporting Actor in “The Fighter,” will he unleash an expletive-filled tirade on par with his one from the set of “Terminator: Salvation?” Let’s hope not.

After the jump, 10 notorious Oscar speeches that we hope this year’s winners do not try to emulate.
