James Cameron Regrets The “Cringeworthy” Oscar Speech He Gave For TITANIC

James Cameron

James Cameron’s Titanic won 11 Academy Awards which includes Best Picture at the 1998 Academy Awards and Cameron hopped up on stage to give his speech, saying: “There is no way that I can express to you what I’m feeling right now. My heart is full to bursting, except to say, ‘I’m the king of the world.'”

Well, Cameron is looking back at his speech and it’s now something he regrets and calls “cringeworthy.” While talking about this with CNN’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? he explained:

“What I learned is you don’t quote your own movie to the Academy if you win, because it’s cringeworthy. It makes the assumption that you didn’t win by a narrow margin, but that every single person sitting in the audience on that night at the Kodak Theatre saw and loved Titanic. And we’ll never know how much we won by, but it might not have been a landslide at all.”

Cameron went on to share that he “took flack for 25 years” for his comments. He also added: “You do have to be careful what you say in your acceptance speech, me and Sally Field, we have a little self-help group together on this.”
