The bank HSBC recently studied the 84 acceptance speeches delivered by Oscar's acting winners since 1994 and broke down who got thanked the most (and least) by the winners.

This story first appeared in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

As part of its "Together, We Advance" campaign, which salutes the role that support networks play in personal success, the bank HSBC studied the acceptance speeches of all 84 Academy Award acting winners from 1994 to 2014 to see who the stars acknowledged from the Oscars stage.
