‘The Dude’ Has Finally Won an Oscar!

7 03 2010

From AP:

Jeff Bridges, the affable and well-liked star of “Crazy Heart,” won the best actor Academy Award Sunday night, an honor that has eluded him four times before. His first nomination came nearly 40 years ago in 1971.

Once onstage, Bridges took a fun and lively victory lap, thanking his parents, collaborators, agent and his wife and three daughters.

“Thank you mom and dad for turning me on to such a groovy profession,” a clearly pleased Bridges said in accepting the award.

Backstage, Bridges clutched his Oscar in one hand and a glass of champagne in the other. Asked to assess his life and career, Bridges invoked his character in “The Big Lebowski.”

“Ups and downs – what does The Dude say? – strikes and gutters, man,” Bridges said.

He sipped his drink at times and raised his glass as if to toast reporters before leaving an interview room.

That Oscar will totally tie the room together.  [tweetmeme service=”bit.ly”]
