It truly was McConaughey Day. Matthew McConaughey brought home the Academy Award for Best Actor last night and delivered an acceptance speech worthy of six or seven more statues. He gave a touching tribute to his deceased dad, thanked his family in eloquent fashion, worked in some stuff about how God taught him science, and gave us yet another fascinating look at his lifestyle philosophy (his personal hero is HIMSELF IN TEN YEARS).
In short, he was at his McConaughey-est, even working in his signature catchphrase. Every viewer participating in FilmDrunk’s Oscars drinking game is having their stomach pumped right now.
It’s safe to say this one won’t be landing on anyone’s list of Most Cringe-Worthy Oscar Acceptance Speeches.
