The first thing that you should do when you win an Oscar....

…is thank God. The second thing you should do is forget it. The third thing you should do is call your agent and tell him you need a job (Rod Steiger 1925-2002)

Outspan’s only gone and won a fucking Oscar. I genuinely feel a massive sense of pride having heard this. Doesn’t he just strike ya like the type of guy who you’d see lashing Buckfast into himself on Stephens Green on a Saturday night frequently stopping to share it around.

Here’s the performance of the song….

And the acceptance speech….

Fair play to DDL for his award too, another example of a man being British when achieves something but being Irish when he fucks up. God bless the world’s media.


  1. Glen brought his Ma to the Oscars! I love how much Hollywood is endeared to them, have you ever seen anything like (is it John Stewart?) repeating their back stage chat with love in his eyes?

    I'm so happy, this made me cry!

  2. Ahhhh, fair play Glen and marketa, lovely speeches, genuine shock and emotion, you gotta love it.

  3. Can't see videos in work, have to wait til later.

  4. That's so sweet the way he brought her back out, I was so gutted initially (as I'm sure she was!!!) when she began to speak and her "moment" seemed to be taken from her! So cool....

  5. Brilliant...

    Love the John Stewart telling the story from backstage... Fair play to one and all...
