He got screwed by the Academy; he totally should have won the Oscar for his part in The Wrestler.

I think another very good actor could have swapped with Penn and MILK would still have been a very good film. Nobody other than Rourke could have played THE WRESTLER and made it near as good as it was. Only one actor could have carried it off, and it was him. Years from now, it’ll be his performance that people will look back on and wonder what the hell the Academy was thinking.

His is a timeless brand of cool, like, he wrote the book for all the guys who followed in his big footsteps…..Truly, he got robbed on The Wrestler….but I predict that he will win an Oscar with another great film, in the next three years. Mickey, you ROCK! Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *Comment Name * Email * Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
