In case you missed it last night, Matthew McConaughey won the Oscar for best actor as a result of his work in "Dallas Buyer's Club." To kick off his acceptance speech, McConaughey thanked God for the blessings in his life and then he thanked his family.
"First off I want to thank God, because he's the one I look up to, he's graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or any other human kind. He has shown me that it's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late (British actor) Charlie Laughton, who said, 'When you got God you got a friend and that friend is you.'"

Meanwhile, Cate Blanchett, who won for best actress, thanked pervert Woody Allen for her Oscar win.
I guess he never makes movies that aren’t family friendly? Somehow I doubt it very much.
Too bad. I thought he was a good actor. What’s he going to do now? I’m surprised they didn’t cut it out of the broadcast.
He’s very talented. I haven’t yet seen the movie, but I’m glad he won.
Good show, Mr. McConaughey. A simple act of gratitude to our Creator and a good example. Probably doesn’t seem like much, but my guess is that in Hollywood this took a lot of guts.
Whether he has or not he seemed to be the only person in that room full of tiny people who had something worthwhile to say.
I am not one to pretend that someone has become a good person because they “thanked God” at a stupid awards show.
His 15 minutes in the Wolf of Wall Street actually stole the show.
He’d better enjoy it while it lasts because, after his comment about God, he’ll never work in Hollywood again.
Pretty sad when something like this is actually considered “brave” and “news”
God’s probably still wondering why they had to add a tranny to the movie plot when one was never in the original “real life” story.
I guess they took the “World’s Fastest Indian” route: no movie can be better than the book without adding a transvestite.
OK thats good.
His movie “Mudd” was great.
Whether or not he’s a “good person” is not the matter ... that he said a “good thing” on an international stage — especially considering the make-up of the audience — is worthy of note. (Perhaps his role in “Contact” gave him pause ...)

True Detective (TV series)
I still say Jared Leto was just as impressive in his remarks hinting that his Mom could have aborted him as as single Mom but instead chose to raise him and his brother while also showing support for those in the Ukraine and Venezuela. Not sure he will be working again, either. LOL
“Good show, Mr. McConaughey. A simple act of gratitude to our Creator and a good example. Probably doesnt seem like much, but my guess is that in Hollywood this took a lot of guts.”
It will be interesting to see what parts he is offered after giving thanks to God in such a public place.
or maybe seeing a naked Terry Bradshaw in “Failure to Launch” made him think of God??
I guess Wolf of Wall Street should be viewed in every elementary school then.
