Along with Michael Shannon and Jeremy Renner, Melissa Leo is my favorite actor working today. She absolutely killed it in Frozen River, and in The Fighter she made the fantastic Christian Bale look like he needed more acting classes. So when she won her overdue Oscar last night, she said “fuckin’” in her acceptance speech. Basically what I’m saying is, the only way she could be any cooler is if she came on stage flying an X-Wing Fighter.
In case you missed it in my last two posts, the 83rd Academy Awards were last night. Besides Inception not winning Best Picture, the greatest tragedy of the night was James Franco and Anne Hathaway as the hosts. James Franco was high as giraffe’s pussy the whole night and Anne Hathaway and her tentacle arms were painfully unfunny. I couldn’t have laughed less if my doctor up showed and presented my brain with Best Achievement in Tumors. Anyway, here were the night’s main winners.
