Award-Winning Actors Get No Prizes For Acceptance Speeches

New York, NY -- Some award-winning actors get low marks for how they accept their awards.

For instance, New York-based public speaking expert TJ Walker says Al Pacino's acceptance speech at the Golden Globes ranks 2.1 on a 10-point scale.

Walker isn't mincing words. He says Pacino sounded like "...he was auditioning for "Rainman: The Homeless Years."

He's also at a loss for words for Diane Keaton, who read her Golden Globe acceptance speech like "a nervous 7th grader running for student council."

Renee Zellweger also left Walker speechless. He says he tried to count how many times she said "um" during her acceptance speech and lost count after the 23rd time.

But Walker does have some kind words for Bill Murray, whose speech ranks 9.7 on the scale, for "seeming prepared without being canned."
