  1. She didn't lose to Julia Roberts. She just didn't get a shitty trophy. We (and Julia Roberts, and everybody else) know who really won.

  2. From imdb.com:
    During Ellen Burstyn's impassioned monologue about how it feels to be old, cinematographer Matthew Libatique accidentally let the camera drift off-target. When director Darren Aronofsky called "cut" and confronted him about it, he realized the reason Libatique had let the camera drift was because he had been crying during the take and fogged up the camera's eyepiece. This was the take used in the final print.

  3. Being raised by a amazingly compassionate and caring single mother for almost my entire childhood and even until now (im 22), and  whom hasnt re-married (or even went on a date for years on end for that matter)yet, this scene was by far the most painful and heartbreaking one in the whole movie. ive always and still worry about a similar situation slowly coming to fruition as I got older, and then unexpectedly seeing it in this movie was devastating to me. It still brings a tear to my eye. 

  4. I know the original author suffered from depression. A lot of the mother's dialogue here "having a reason to get up in the morning…. a reason to smile" is symptomatic of those who suffer from clinical depression. I wonder if this part was in the original book?

  5. This is why it is never healthy to build your life completely around other people. It is good to care for and help others, but the truth of life is that in the end it is only your own well being that is most important. You have to love yourself at least as much as you love others.

  6. I would have recommended for her to take care of a foster child. She's the type of person where when she has nothing to do, she goes crazy.

  7. Man I hated that guy on tv that was laughing at her and all those people who were laughing too. That was hard too take. Man I feel so bad for her.

  8. I especially find this dialogue heartbreaking when thinking about the scene at the end when her friends visit her in the hospital. Seeing how much her downfall affected them, you can tell she mattered to them more than she thought.

  9. this movie makes me so sad thinking of the American lifestyle. how all children abandon their parents. in most hispanic countries your mother lives with you even If you're married and have a family white people in america send their mothers off to old people homes, it's pure evil. my mother will live with me until the end of her days. it's the least I can do for her after all she's done. I love her so much.

    never abandon your parents. please do the right thing and change what is considered normal or cool. it is not cool to live your own life and visit your mom at a nursing home once a month.

  10. life is so pointless. Why do you need to suffer and go to work just to maintain a home just to go home, eat, watch tv or play games or enjoy the human entertainment the industry has given us, when we just repeat the same cycle over and over. What joy is there in life. What is the point.

  11. okay. if i ever get a house, im inviting my parents to live with me, no way im going to leave them alone to rot without a purpose for the rest of their life.

  12. Ellen Burstyn is a stupendous actress, and she was robbed of the Academy Award for her work here. She created Sara Goldfarb as the saddest, most tragic, and yet most relatable character in the film.

  13. I just can't believe they gave the Oscar to Julia Roberts that year, just goes to show the Academy Awards are bullshit. This quality of acting is so extraordinary, it's beyond Meryl Streep (yes, I said it). One of the most heart wrenching performances ever.

  14. its just insane that the academy gave Julia Roberts the win and snubbed Ellen Burstyn of that oscar, what kind of crack where they smokin?

  15. I admit, without shame, that this was the first movie scene to ever make me cry.

    Phenomenal acting from Ellen Burstyn. That fact that she didn't get a award is one of the biggest jokes in movie award history.

  16. I cried when I watched this, me and my mother had a conversation similar to this before she died from a medication overdose.

  17. This scene is just straight out sad. Her performance in this scene, and the entire movie, was an outstandingly amazing performance, and one of the most heart-wrenching performances I have ever seen in a movie. This makes me want to show even more compassion, and love I have for my mother.

  18. This is the best performance ever in the history of cinema. I am still shocked that this brilliant actress did not receive the academy award. This scene is truly powerful! Thank you Ellen Burstyn for such a realistic depiction of a lonely person. Love this film so much!!!

  19. I cried so hard after this scene, and again when Harry went into the cab and cried too. Best scene in the whole movie.

  20. She definitively got robbed of that Oscar. Can't believe they gave it to Julia Roberts, it just makes NO sense. Julia is a great actress, no doubt about it, but Ellen was just OUT OF THIS WORLD in that movie. One of the best female performance i've ever seen.

  21. 02:01 "Now and i get the sun, i SMILE"… Oh god, this is the best performance of all time, no doubt about it and Ellen Burstyn was one of the best actress of all time.

  22. She got robbed like a mofo. This scene right here should have nailed the Oscar for her. "It makes tomorrow alright!" Sad

  23. Ellen Burstyn is a rare case in which an actor or actress has adapted perfectly to the changing of cinema. It's hard to believe that she starred in The Exorcist in 1973 and this movie came out nearly 30 years later, yet here she is in one of the greatest performances of all time. Her acting has only gotten better over the years. She continues to put on amazing performances for different eras of audiences.

  24. The fact that she lost the oscar to Julia Roberts is one of the greatest travesties in the history of awards.

  25. I will admit that I have felt the same way she does in this clip, but I've never decided to do something drastic like increase medicine without the dr's ok. it's not worth it

  26. Heartbreaking in its honest display about her sense of loneliness and uselessness, and also about how clearly her addiction is already robbing her.

  27. I love how there is no music or special effects this is exactly the longest dialogue scene in whole movie it's just two great actors showing the best of what they do

  28. I just want to give her a hug and tell her that she IS a somebody. She's a somebody to so many people. The same people who don't want to see her mental and state degrade. The same people she showed love to. I just want to tell that the simple fact you raised a child and had such a positive impact on everyone should be the reason you wake up with a smile. Truly tragic.

  29. Absolutely brilliant acting. When she says "I like the way I feel" you can see it written on her face in the moment that she doesn't really believe it and she has to keep nodding and reassuring herself. Then she thinks about an object, the red dress, and it makes her smile and distracts her from those unhappy feelings just a bit longer. I was sobbing into the pouring rain when I left the theatre watching this.

  30. I'm not trying to shortcut this performance in any way, but if someone would be so kind to answer, was 0:35 – 0:52 Burstyn's oscar clip? It just seems like a perfect little snippet for that.

  31. A few years ago I thought this was novelty movie with cheap shock. Now I'm feeling old every day and scenes like this hit way too close to home

  32. This scene and the build-up really hit me hard the first time I saw it – it opened my eyes to a life situation I hadn't considered, and Ellen Burstyn showed such a range of powerful emotion in such a compressed time frame I, (like many others I suspect), instantly Googled her to find out what else she had done and why I was not familiar with her work.

    They say a great actor is never greater than the part they play – and I couldn't suggest an actor who fits this expression better than Ellen.

  33. Aking Ina
    Mahal kong Ina
    Pagmamahal mo aking Ina
    Yakap mo sa akin
    Hinahanap ko
    Init ng pag-ibig
    Kumot ng bunso
    Sa gitna ng pagkakahimbing
    Yakap mo ang gigising

  34. This really is sad. Even through her addiction and hallucinations she still does love Harry very much and you start to realize that fitting in the red dress for the show is so important because it takes her back to a better time when Harry graduated high school and her husband was still alive and it was just a really happy day for her and she feels wearing that dress on tv and telling everyone about her husband and son will help her relive the moment and start a new chapter. And Harry, despite being an addict himself, shows genuine concern and love for his mother and, in an ironic cycle, disapproves of her drug use. In a way he’s talking to himself since he still doesn’t fully know the danger he’s in

  35. A quote from IMDB: "During Ellen Burstyn's impassioned monologue about how it feels to be old, cinematographer Matthew Libatique accidentally let the camera drift off-target. When director Darren Aronofsky called "cut" and confronted him about it, he realized the reason Libatique had let the camera drift was because he had been crying during the take and fogged up the camera's eyepiece. This was the take used in the final print."

    THAT is testimony to the power of Ellen Burnstyn's acting. A great actor is someone that you can watch and completely forget that they ever acted as another character in any other production.

    Brilliant performance and we all agree she was robbed of her award for the role of Sarah Goldfarb. No one else could have pulled this off as dramatically.

  36. I really hope Ms Burstyn doesn't have visions of herself winning an oscar in the same way that Ms Goldfarb has visions about being on TV….

  37. “I’ll tell them about you…” breaks my heart 😭 that and “it’s a reason to get up in the morning”
