Maybe Sean Penn’s “Oscar” win does have something to do with the homosexual theme after all, now that I think about it.
Penelope Cruz won for Best Supporting role for her lesbian character in, “Vicky Christina Barcelona”. The screenwriter for “Milk” , Dustin Lance Black, who is gay in real life won for Best Screenplay.
I think the Academy wanted the show to be for the gay and lesbian community as well.
But those who think Mickey Rourke got robbed, he didn’t get robbed at all. Sean Penn getting the win was the right choice to make. The Academy wanted to give the award to an actor who played somebody that was real. Harvey Milk was a real life guy, something that was a true story.
Mickey Rourke is a new star on the rise, so he got his first Oscar snub. Anne Hathaway is the same way as Mickey Rourke. Anne was up for “Best Actress”, and she didn’t win either.
Besides that, this is just an awards show, right? Who cares about a golden statue, and there’s always another time for Mickey to get nominated again if he picks the right role in the future. These actors don’t really care if they win or lose. Life goes on.
Them continuing to work on movies is more important than a awards show. Mickey has finally got the recognition in his acting that he deserves, as long as he got nominated in the Oscars, that should be considered an award alone if you know what I mean.
Congrats to Mickey in all of his success. That alone should be more rewarding than an Oscar statue. Like I said, Mickey not winning maybe dissapointing, but Sean deserved it. Mickey getting nominated alone, is a good enough sign that he will one day win one.
