    as much as i don’t really like him, he should definitley have won the award. his performance was incredible, and there was no doubt that he WAS that character. i hope he knows how touching his performance was despite the fact that he didn’t win.

    Mickey should have won. That necklace of his dog is so sweet. God bless Mickey and his sweet little dog Loki who I’m sure is in Heaven watching down on him.

    so unfair, give the Oscar to Sean Penn just because he played a ***.

    He should have won. It was unfair.

    He could have used a pair of underwear, and I’m not sure why his hands are often down the front of his pants (or near that area).

    It’s nice to see him back and he did an amazing job. I’m just wondering what other type(s) of roles can he play or will he get? I don’t know why he was out of work and under the radar for so long, but hopefully more people will see him as an option when casting.

    I watched his speech at the Independent Spirit Awards and when he mentioned his little dog it was so sad :( My heart goes out to him for his loss, animals for some are family and he seemed to love Loki so much!

    Rourke was robbed.
    his role in the wrestler was very good and a wonderful film in general. it was a comeback as well. On and off screen Rourke is vibrant. and Penn? off the camera’s blends into the wallpaper.

    Chihuahua POWER Says:

    This is bullshit….the man plays the most convincing role and loses wtf?
    Hollywood is full of **** and Rourke said it soooo often.

    Sorry for his dog…i understand his love for his little friend.

    i Want Mickey to win but, hell, he lost. Anyway, he looks so fabulous in this outstanding white tuxedo. He has style.

    Jerkface for dropping out of Iron Man 2 because he decided the money he’d already agreed to wasn’t good enough.

    Sorry you didn’t win Mick….I voted for you in the
    SAG awards….hope SAG survives the latest
    onslaught by the producers…with the collapse of
    talks this weekend….

    As much as I admire Sean Penn, Mickey Rourke deserved the oscar last night. Glad he is back and with a vengeance. I am certain his best work is still ahead of him.

    AalaA Says:

    Despite the fact that I wanted Sean Penn to win this, but I felt so upset seeing Mickey Rourke going home empty-handed, I mean there’s alot of actors whose their chances of winning Oscars are so little, and unfortunately Mickey is one of them, it’s not him actually it’s the way the Academy chooses their nominees…

    Hopefully he will be able to come back with another nomination-oscar-worthy so he can win.

    I rooted for Mickey Rourke and was devastated when Sean Penn won the award. I love Sean Penn and loved his performance in Milk, but as a lot of you have mentioned above,I think the miraculous comeback of Mickey Rourke, just that makes him the on who deserves this award the most! I hope he will do even better films in the future, I know he will.
    Sean Penn did give respect to Mickey during his speech,and that was pretty touching for me.

    Sassy Says:

    MICKEY: your portrayal of Randy the Ram was perfection. My husband is still talking about bits & pieces of the movie and telling his buddies to go see it. Just the right balance of all emotions. You deserved the Oscar, period. Just know that your fans will be at the theater when your next movie comes out en masse. The statue would have been great but it’s us fans who will speak loudest at the box office with our dollars. Well done!!!

    That photo necklace with his little dog was so cute! I googled and came up with a site that sells that stuff. I am going to get my lilly put on a necklace.

    elle Says:

    MICKEY ROURKE SHOULD HAVE WON, HANDS DOWN. we all know why sean penn was “voted” in. mostly actors vote and they ALWAYS vote for the “right to fight” PREDICTABLE, human rights movies. votes should be for the best performance, not the “human rights” flavor of the month film.
