When It Comes to Academy Award Acceptance Speeches, a Lot of People Get Thanked More Than God

The website Vocativ analyzed every Oscar acceptance speech archived on the Academy Award website — all 1,396 of them — to find out who has been thanked more than anyone else.

God didn’t even finish in the top 5.

Here’s the list of name-drops:

5) Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) with 22
4) George Lucas (Star Wars) with 23
3) James Cameron (Titanic) with 28
2) Harvey Weinstein (producer) with 34
1) Steven Spielberg (E.T., Schindler’s List) with 42

God finished sixth with 19 mentions. Maybe one of these days, he’ll actually deserve the accolades…
