According to everything I’ve read to this point, the Hollywood Film Awards are a joke. Everyone from James L. Brooks to Ben Affleck were poking fun at it, but it was Johnny Depp who truly set the tone for the evening with this amazing speech.
Depp was set to introduce talent manager Shep Gordon, the subject of the Mike Meyers’ documentary Supermensch, but things clearly were a bit off from the start. It is almost like he flash-backed to the lizard scene from Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, or at least found a stash of Jack Sparrow’s rum somewhere.
It is the most fun I’ve had watching Johnny Depp in a few years. I hope more people attempt to do award shows drunk, everyone but Sean Young.
