Matthew McConaughey & Camila Alves: Best Oscar Kiss
Now that he’s actually a proper Oscar winner – what’s up Sarah Nostradamus! – you think people could properly pronounce Matthew McConaughey’s name? It’s not Mick-con-ah-KAY. It’s not Mick-con-ah-HEE. It’s Mick-con-ah-HAY.
Anyway, that was a good kiss when his name was called. I believed that kiss. To me that was a real kiss. Between two people who really dig each other. And before that I liked his reaction. He bent his head back, almost in …relief. And that’s about as authentic as it’ll get at this party.
So now we talk about his speech. Some of you loved it. Were inspired by it. And others…like me…
I thought he was playing the part of Joel Osteen in his next film. Then I had to check back with Duana about whether or not he was actually saying that he was hero-ing himself in 10 year increments. She argues that in theory, in a different context, there’s a point here: which is that we continue to push ourselves and improve.
All variations on the same character we’ve seen in the multiple of ten year eras through his career. I was expecting him to start thumping on his chest and making those sounds from The Wolf Of Wall Street – apparently something he does in real life. Just Keep Living is Larger Than Life. But, f-ck, wouldn’t you have wanted to be at Matt Damon’s house last night?
