Jennifer Connelly is the winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She beat off the challenge of Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith and Marisa Tomei. Connelly was the bookies favourite to win the award. Below is her acceptance speech:


Hello. Okay. I brought paper because I didn't want to forget. Thank you to the members of the Academy for this honor.


By some beautiful twist of fate I've landed in this vocation that demands that I feel and helps me to learn. No film has moved or taught me more than A BEAUTIFUL MIND. Thank you to all of our magnificent cast and crew for their invaluable collaboration and most especially to Ron Howard and to Russell Crowe. Thanks to all the artists who have inspired me and the list is too long. Thanks to my dearest ones, Risa Shapiro, Kelly Ross and my friends.


I believe in love that there is nothing more important. Alicia Nash is a true champion of love. So thank you to her for her example. My son Kai is for me the greatest messenger. And so thank you to him for all of our days. Thank you very much.
