Whether we make billions or we make our living by begging, someone helps us get along, someone buys what we sell, someone throws their change in our bucket. Each of us is indebted to someone, everyday.
The day after, all anyone could talk about was how we was "robbed." There's only one problem with this: It's absolutely not true.
The speech shouldn't seem canned and rehearsed or else you appear to have expected to win. It also can't ramble, as there's so little time. And if you have won for being an actor, well, then you're supposed to act well.
I was really surprised by Matthew McConaughey's Oscar acceptance speech at the Oscars. I've attended a handful of the award shows, most recently the N...
This career about-face fuels the perception that McConaughey has entered a realm untouched by any thespian, ever. Recent chatter places him in the same league as cinema's titans -- Hollywood's Mount Rushmore -- individuals who helped pioneer acting as both a craft and a calling, not merely a profession.

In all, the show was no enormous shame, a few good jokes, no great shocks. But the program did its job. It honored those who labored long and hard in the film industry this past year. And maybe that's all we should expect.
When I watched Mr. McConaughey's Golden Globes acceptance speech and he said the film had been turned down 86 times before the financing came through, I couldn't help but think about the taboos that still exist today for other sexually transmitted diseases. Namely, HPV.
This year's crop of best acting nominees in the lead and supporting roles somehow manage to represent the archetypes of every person you've ever dated. To wit...
Never let important messages in films go overlooked by your admiration for the acting and writing. Let films such as these be a gateway for helping us all to live healthier and more enjoyable lives.

Non Stop has problems. How many times can we watch the talented and tormented Liam Neeson play the same character? Here as the Air Marshall who is to ...
Reviews don't matter. In the end, the people who agree with you will feel vindicated and the people who don't will be defensive. No minds will be changed. So what the hell?
