what's with Hoffman and the knit cap? jeez, going for the junkie look?

Rourke is great. I love that the guy doesn't wave the "look how awesome I am!" flag. This goes down as one of the best Thanks/acceptance speeches.

yes it turns out he was going for the junkie look

Eric Roberts helped rape Doctor Who. For that, he shall never be forgiven.

Every time someone mentions Dr. Who on here, I feel like it must be a joke. How can you rape a show with no consistent concept? Anyhow, I'd sacrifice a hundred Dr. Whos to get this acceptance speech.

neeeeeeeeerds

Cena_mark - 2009-02-23
We can agree on that Futurebot.

He's actually a really good actor in the right parts.

And, I'm sorry, but after the shit they did with the Master in Season 3, What Roberts did with the role looks like fucking Royal Shakespearean Company work.

Rovin - 2009-02-23
Roberts didn't rape Doctor Who, Philip Segal did in an attempt to Americanize it.

Cena_mark - 2009-02-23
They did the same in the attempt to Americanize Red Dwarf. But that didn't last past the pilot.

This doesn't make me a nerd.

I think Roberts felt a little raped by Rourke's comments.

I love to see The Wrestler get praised. For decades snobs have been looking down upon my favorite sport and its fans. Its nice Hollywood was able to pull its head out of its ass and appreciate a film about prowrestling.
simon666 - 2009-02-23
The wrestling you're talking about isn't a sport. And don't bother arguing because it's physical it is a sport, but that isn't the definition of sport. Ballet is physical, and it is not a sport. You watch weight lifters and steroid users pantomiming.

Rovin - 2009-02-23
And regardless, is it WRESTLING that's getting praised or the FILM? They are not one in the same. Pro wrestling seems to leave a lot of broken junkies and emotional basket cases in its wake.

Cena_mark - 2009-02-23
Your reply is exactly the snobbery I'm talking about. Don't you realize the pain and sacrifice prowrestlers go through. You wouldn't even be able to get past day one of wrestling school.

How could they ignore the pillars of cinema that were Ready to Rumble and No Holds Barred?

Frank Rizzo - 2009-02-23
spirit award? Dont you get those with 10 proofs of purchase of any Nabisco product?

5 stars because no one at the Oscars thanked their dead dog.

Who is the little blond dude and what did he do?
Dutch Oven Fresh Pie - 2009-02-24
He used to do commercials for encyclopedias.

Michael Houser - 2009-02-24
They had a 30-second delay ready in case he won Best actor.

5 Stars for "Thanks for the money" at the end and of course the liberal use of scary forbidden words.
