It's the part of the Oscar telecast you secretly wait for: that moment when a winner gets awkwardly cut off by the orchestra during their acceptance speech. Long-winded winners have been rushed off the stage before, and the odds are high it'll happen again this Sunday.

In honor of this cringe-worthy Academy Award tradition, Moviefone presents some of the most memorable "get off the stage!" musical interruptions. Memo to possible winners Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Christoph Waltz and Daniel Day-Lewis: keep your thank-yous and oh-gods brief.
