"The Dirty Bird" - Jamal Anderson Loves The White Girl
NBA SUCK-OFF: LEBRON, PACERS, AND SO FORTH

BAFTAS: SLUMDOG, LEDGER, ETC.

By 02.09.09

The British Academy Awards, the BAFTAs, happened over the weekend, and that slick Hollywood fluff piece (set in India!) Slumdog Millionaire took best picture.  When I heard, I got so angry that I immediately looked at pictures of Emma Watson and imagined what she’d look like naked and with bigger boobs.  She’s really pretty.  She’s like the little sister I never boned.  Elsewhere, Heath Ledger locked up the award for being dead and Mickey Rourke wore a fashion scarf.  So, pretty much business as usual.

Rourke took home Best Actor, and upon being asked how he was able to so convincingly portray aging wrestler Randy the Ram, Rourke called out Chris Jericho, snorted a line, and invited the interviewer to a “fireman party”. (full list of winners and Mickey Rourke’s acceptance speech after the jump)
