"You like me!" shouted a hysterical Sally Field, after winning an Oscar for "Norma Rae." "Right now, you like me!" Winning an Oscar is every actor's dream, so it only makes sense that some award winners react by openly weeping in front of millions of people worldwide.

Sally's famous 1985 speech wasn't the first that involved tears, and it certainly won't be the last. Natalie Portman cried during her win for "Black Swan," as did Halle Berry for "Monster's Ball." In honor of the 84th annual Academy Awards, Moviefone presents the weepiest Oscar speeches in history. Get out the tissues!

The Academy Awards -- with host Billy Crystal -- air Sunday, Feb. 26 on ABC.
