    I like Matthew better with blonde hair.

  • Amy


    It’s amazing that he has hair at all. I wonder what he used to grow it back.

  • I

    Him & jared leto deserved it.

  • Woody’s Better

    To win these days all an actor has to do is lose massive amounts of weight and star in a movie with a gay theme. Leto is a good actor Matt is not, but he campaigned like a politician to win this nomination. I don’t care how much weight he loses he is not a good actor and he did not deserve to win. Gays rule Hollywood with their homosexual agenda.

    @Woody’s Better:

    Oh look a homophobe. How 1950s of you…

  • rome

    Its about time!! Well deserved! Jared and him deserve it and fingers cross they win the oscars !

  • Alright, alright, alright!!

    Congratulations Mr. McConaughey!!

    I am glad he decided to change his genre of movie choices. He took yhe money grab after doing “A Time To Kill” which is understandable but he is back and on the right path.

    Leo should have taken it.

  • http://. Shocked

    He couldn’t out act any of the nominees in his category, even on his best day of acting.

  • http://. Shocked

    Yes, this should be Leo’s year or anybody’s besides Matthew, but instead their pushing McConaughey because he’s a famly man who shows his love to his adorable wife of whom he just discovered this year.

    When they are usually pictured together it sometimes looked like they couldn’t stand each other until Matthew’s campaign for the Oscars.

    So he will probably win the Oscar for best actor. He now is the it man for Hollywood.

  • woah

    He’s ugly, can’t act, and is only getting these awards because he became emaciated for his role. Which is sending a very confusing message to Hollywood and their body positivity anti-eating disorder message. So what is it? Starve and win an Oscar or blame Hollywood for causing eating disorders?

  • claire m.

    LOVE him. his performace and that movie really touched me – very well deserved!

  • watching


    His performance was very good in your DBC. He is not winning because he has done as many in acting have done before to get into a role. Just because someone lose weight, gain weight, shave their head, or any other transformation doesn’t mean they will win an award! You have to back up that change with GREAT ACTING which is what Matthew gave. Remember, last year everyone thought he would be nominated for MUD.

    The problem for most of youis that you can’t see his growth beyond his past work. He shouldn’t have never been branded as just a romcom guy when he can act. There are several recent movies and a sprinkle in the past that maybe you all should view that are not romcoms before casting
    final judgment, starting with A Time To Kill.

    Now the knly thing is I hope he stays humble and don’t go “all I’m better than you” after his wining year.

    Noooooooo!!!!! Stupid, Stupid Mathew horse face!! Leonardo should’ve won that Oscar, he’s one on the best actor of our time!

  • rose ellis
