    Why didn’t he style his hair? Would’ve looked so much nicer..

  • Krystin

    Well it was freezing and ridiculously windy so it probably messed up his hair.

  • miranda

    Can he get rid of that damn sweater? He wears it everywhere

  • lovelydee

    Aww, yay. Congrats to him!!!

  • TinyDancer

    It was freezing and windy in Santa Monica, where the Spirit Awards were held, so his hair was messed about and he had the sweater to stay warm (the actual awards are held in a tent, not indoors).

    It doesn’t even matter, though. Even with windblown hair and that sweater he still loks better than a ton of other manicured and polished actors, so I think people can get over it.

    So happy he won, he was outstanding in 127 Hours.

    YOU are crap! Stop posting stupid things, you brainless idiot.

  • shubert

    @TinyDancer: You get over it, are you his mommy?

  • TinyDancer

    @shubert: Oh, eff off shubert. Who are you, Joan Rivers? Just because I didn’t agree with your short-sided assessment of his wardrobe doesn’t mean I’m his mommy. I don’t need to be his mommy to have my own opinion.

  • Jen
