Susanne Silmarien : I think the Oscars account on Youtube MUST upload the video including the whole 12 minutes of ovation and applauses.

sandiegotrojandawg : I had the honor of attending these 44th awarding of the Oscars--what a night it was. Something that occurred at this special presentation of Chaplin's honorary award that isn't shown in this video was, just after the gentleman finished introducing Chaplin onstage, Chaplin appeared from the wings on stage left (your right as you're looking). He was then serenaded by Johnny Mathis singing, "Smile" as he walked toward center stage. The audience erupted and stood on its feet….the ovation lasted twelve minutes (to this day, the longest in Oscar history) as Johnny sang the lyrics and, as I looked around, so many people were in tears, as was I. It truly was a magical evening and this video helped to bring back so many memories of that night. By the way, Chaplin's appearing at this Oscars presentation was his first visit to the United States in over 20 years! He was overwhelmed by the reception he received. While I don't agree with his political views, I do recognize him as being one of the major pinnacles in the history of film making. He was brilliant at it.

Andre Luiz : He was the greatest of all time !! thank you so much for everything! Chaplin forever

Millan Dhillon : CHARLIE CHAPLIN was a LEGEND CHARLIE CHAPLIN is a LEGEND CHARLIE CHAPLIN will be a LEGEND FOREVER And NO ONE can take his place. HIS contribution is unbeatable. SALUTE TO YOU SIR !

العرب THE ARABS : it's the first time i hear his voice .

Dowdly : The U.S. government should be ashamed of their actions towards this man.


Udtuhan Udtuhan : They don't stop saying bravo for this unbelievable legendary actor😱

tankmaster1018 : Most well deserved standing ovation in history. Even in 2018, I can't think of a more important/influential actor in terms of advancing cinema/entertaining the world and keeping people from tearing each other's throats out. I mean, this man kept people entertained and motivated in some of the most difficult times in post 20th century history. And I'm seeing in the comments that this ovation actually lasted 12 full minutes?! That makes me smile, I only wish it was longer, but that would probably embarrass Charlie who is one of the most humble people ever, and already seemed totally overwhelmed by the love shown!

Charles Charls : I love You Charls!

Bhushan Garje : He was able to speak through expressions at that very old age. Hats off to legend.

Logical world : He is not only the best comedian of all time....the best actor as well .... I have no words to describe him ..... I feel very sad when ever I see this video....we always miss u chaplin .....🙌🙌🙌👏👏

Laura Pickman : His humble expressions make me weep. Such a beautiful man.

Saroj Kachhawaha : He is not dead the legends will dead only with their body not their soul their soul will always will in our hearts like charlie chaplin the king of comedy and micheal jackson the king of pop love you charlie and micheal 😗👨🖐 i only wants to say their soul that we always love you and you are always in our hearts till the end bye bye charlie i name is prateek

Mill Burray : Chaplin cried for humanity as a disguised dictator in his own movie. But America kicked him out from the states for 20 years. America kicked out the humanity for 20 freakin years.

NOTHING EVERYTHING : 2018 anyone .?🙄😀😀

Shubham Goel : When the trophy itself feels privileged. BRAVO! BRAVO!! BRAVO!!! 😊😊😊


Doctor : Government wasted him because of his political views. Shame. Chaplin came for 15 days to arrive at Oscar, because he has no citizenship in USA at this moment. Shame! How they treat a true master of acting because of his political point.

NickJohn : 3:32 la emoción en su cara lo dice todo , el dio la vida por el cine y el arte fue y sera siempre un grande Charlie Chaplin

ban syiem : No one can't take his place even Mr.bean he is legendary

HunterX 780 : I remember when I was 10 in 1940 and I used to love him and I still do he was a great man

Niels Ohlsen : First they throw him out for being a ,communist’. Then, when old and senile, they soothe their phony ‘conscience’ by bringing him back.

Rogerio Hernandez : 12 minutes, for 12 minutes the people at that ceremony stand and clapped for one of the greatest actors, artist, performer, and entertainer ever... ever.

Bimbisar Oraon : he got a 12 minute standing ovation

TOMÁS CIFUENTES : I was in my church and the pastor said “an applause To God!” And the applause lasted like 6 mins and 40 seconds... I was Amazed I even started to laugh because people were motivated to clapping until the last minute. Like if you love God!❤️ Bless you!

LincolnTek : One of my all time favorite scenes from Charlie Chaplin was from his movie The Pawnshop. The fight scene outside the pawnshop makes me laugh every time. The way Chaplin rolls his dukes, the fancy foot work and the way he bobs his head trying to fake out his opponent who happens to be stuck in a ladder cracks me up ! For this never ending laughter Mr.Chaplin has given me I thank him. Charles Chaplin. May he rest in peace.

TWYBORNS : Remember when we had giants walking the earth? Now everyone believes their twitter feed! Chaplin , a fully rounded ,imperfect character who changed the world. Now everyone is a perfect genius and nothing happens at all :-)

Yair Sasson Art : Truly inspiring. what a legend.

Heidi Hulkkonen sohrabi : What a gracefull man with such love and understanding humanity. Mr. Chaplin is in our hearts❤️

nirmala koditkar : This is just an acknowledgement for Mr Charlie's matchless work. Oscar looks to be small in front of this man's work which is larger than Life.

Marizilda Lasalvia : Ele foi ovacionado durante 10 minutos em pé pelos maiores tores e atrizes de Hollywood de tds os tempos! Era 1972...O que não deve ter sido essa homenagem!!!!! Ao maior homem das Artes Cênicas!! The number One!

Aditya Raj : Next is Rowan Atkinson

Jordan Liles : Will the Oscars please put the entire standing ovation on YouTube? Didn't it last several minutes? Why lock it away in a vault, never to be seen again? Let's see it!

Kirk Manning : And I watched it in 1972...great then and now!

Imran Emu : Great artist, no doubt. Probably, he create a genre in comedy film. 💜 LEGEND...
