thank you all very much. Eric Roberts. I just want to say one thing about Eric Roberts. Eric Roberts is probably the best actor I have every worked with I don’t know why in the last 15 years ain’t nobody give him a chance to show his shit again. Because whatever he did 15-20 years ago should be forgiven. No…I am goddam serious about that.
Eric Roberts is the fucking man. And he deserves like I have, like I got, he deserves a 2nd chance. And I wish there would be one goddam film maker in this room that would let him fly. Because the man, he is something else. Thank you Eric.
Eric Accept your award!
Eric will probably be arrested by the end of the day but.
Anyway, and that little blonde dude (Rainn Wilson) that did that thing I’m going to beat your ass when I get out of here.
It’s nice to be presented this award by all these talented, these two talented people, three talented, I don’t know what you do honey. These two are really good.
You know I’ve just gotten thousands of letters and shit, from people, strangers, and people that know me, about my dog that died 6 days ago Lokie. He got a little sad….Lokie this is for you baby.
I just got done talking to the Santa Monica police department. They gave me a bed to sleep in ten years ago. And I thanked them. I asked them for two pillows and they told me to fuck off. But anyway.
thank you to Darren Aronofsky for believing in me. Ugh directors like Darren Aronosky, come on let me finish, I told people in the past directors like Darren Aronofsky come around every 25 years the same way like Coppolla, Parker, all the rest of them and I said 25 years and he (Darren) whispered in my ear 30.
The only thing I want to say to any young actor or actress who gets an opportunity to work with Darren you better be in shape because he will break you down. He is one tough son of a bitch and he don’t like it when I say that… cause he says Mickey you will scare all the actors away from me. Darren you know what…if they don’t have the balls to bring it than fuck em, you know?
Anyway, I want to thank Fox Searchlight. Peter Rice and all the girls. Melissa and I don’t all their names, Ann, Maria, …he stumbled over his words….thank you very much. The little one I call “cap tooth. Uhhh, I know you’re here.
And I want to thank..uh my memory ain’t that good. Oh Jesus. I want to thank? Uhhhh…..uhhhh.
Melissa…oh Marissa, Marissa Tomei.” Goddammit she had to do this pole act, bare ass and she brought it and. She’s a very….is she here?”
OK. Anyway she looked. Not many girls could climb the pole. You understand what I’m saying? And she climbed the pole and she did it well. And I give her big props for that. It was a very coureagous performance. We had to like pry her out of the trailer, you know, but that was alright.
I want to thank the wrestling community who has been very supportive. The WWE. Vince McMahon. They supported us because we exposed some issues …[looks away]
Oh that’s pretty
... we exposed some issues in this film which were very controversial like the steroids and the cocaine and the banging the girl in the ass in the bathroom, but shit like that does happen, these guys are on the road a lot. And they get lonely. And uh
Scott Franklin, I got your name right, thank you very much, I know you’re looking for a job, any directors in here, he was a hell of a producer. And he’s broke right now. And uh, and gee whiz….who else…?”
Paula…the hardest girl in show business, my…she was…she was my publicist, she had her hands full. As I said in the BAFTA Awards, she told me where to do, what to do, what not to do, how to dress, who to fuck. Not to. You know. Paula I love you, you can go back to the farm after tomorrow. Uhhhh”
JP my manager and manager Kahla. God bless you. Thank you Peter Rice, your boss Jim Jimanoppolis, something like that (he couldn’t remember his name). Thanks for the money. Thank you all very much.
