    I thought it was epic and insightful. I don't think anyone has ever gave a speech as profound as that ever in the Oscars. It was fresh and inspiring.



    Here's also his BAFTA speech. Which was also controversial.

    Was terrible. Most impressive part of it to me was his flexibility. Its rare for someone to be able to have their head so far up their own ass while stile being able to jerk themself off.

    I miss the days when they just thank the director and the writers and their fellow actors

    I mean he's coo coo for cocopuffs but hell of an actor. You can separate the two and just enjoy the craft. It's not like he's fiddling kids or something.

    - queer rights
    - gender inequality
    - racial inequality
    - some other inequalities I think
    - environment
    - species inequality
    - don't take milk from cows that's meant for their babies

    Then some decent stuff about being a dick and hard to work with in the past and let's all work together and give second chances, etc.

    Speech sucked.

    Brad Pitt’s speech sucked, too

    “But but, Muh John Bolton blah blah blah” ... f**king clown, man

    Most of Hollywood are just clowns.

    Yeah first part was annoying. “What gives us the right to steal milk from baby cows??” Second part was good though and very applicable to our shitty post social media culture
