Matthew McConaughey speech at yesterday’s Oscars got different opinions from all over the world. Us Weekly called it a “touching” speech (really?) while Time called it “confounding” and “semi-bizarre”.
I’ll personally say that I’m a bit disappointed that McConaughey didn’t mention HIV/AIDS once in his speech. Given that he won for the “Best Actor” award in his role playing a person with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club,” you’d think maybe he could have paused his self-indulgent, self-congratulatory, self-obessed speech to mention — as did Jared Leto, who also won an Oscar playing a person with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club” — the “36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS.”
What do you guys think?
