90th Oscars Onstage Transcript: Actor in a Supporting Role
SPEECH BY: Sam Rockwell
SAM ROCKWELL: Thanks. Okay, run that clock, Jimmy. I want to get that Ski Jet or whatever that was. I’d like thank the Academy, never thought I’d say those words. Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Christopher Plummer, Woody Harrelson: you guys rock. You inspire me. And you always have. When I was eight years old, I was called into the principal’s office and my father was looking very solemn. And he said, “We gotta go, it’s Grandma.” We got in the car and I said, “What’s wrong with Grandma.” And he said, “Nothing, we going to the movies.” My mom and dad’s love of movies became my love of movies, so thank you for that, Mom and Dad. I love you.
Thank you, the formidable Frances McDormand. We’re at the convention, Frances. The fantastic Woody Harrelson. You guys are my heroes. The rest of this incredible cast and crew, incredible! Fox Searchlight, everyone involved in “Three Billboards.” Everyone who’s ever looked at a billboard.
Martin McDonagh, I wouldn’t be standing here if it wasn’t for you. I want to do 10 other movies with you, I love you. Rhonda, Elise, Jason, Liz Mahoney, Liz Himmelstein, Terry Knickerbocker, all my good friends and my beloved Leslie Bibb. You light my fire, baby. I love you. Peace out. This is for my old buddy, Phil Hoffman. For my old buddy, Phil Hoffman.
