Video: Thanking God at the Oscars?

posted at 12:01 pm on March 3, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

We see this a lot at sporting events, but not a lot of it from the entertainment industry. When someone from Hollywood gets up and thanks God, especially at the Oscars, it makes headlines … which says volumes about Hollywood and the media.

What’s most interesting about this heartfelt gratitude towards God is the reaction it gets from the Academy audience, or more accurately, the lack thereof:

In accepting the best actor Oscar for his role as Ron Woodroof in “Dallas Buyer’s Club” on Sunday, McConaughey, 44, said he needs three things in his life to survive: God, family and someone to look up to as a hero. …

After thanking God, his wife and children, his mother and his late father, he offered up something else long-time fans have been waiting to hear this Oscar season: “All right, all right, all right.”

And that’s what “brought the house down,” as CBS reports. At least they didn’t boo God, which means that Hollywood is still a little ahead of the Democratic Party’s 2012 convention performance. Kudos to McConaughey for his speech, but I’m a little mystified at the attention it’s getting. Has no recent Oscar winner mentioned God in an acceptance speech? I haven’t watched the show in years, but I find it a little difficult to believe that it’s that rare.

Update: Via Twitchy, one MTV host even noticed the stunned reaction:

Those who know in their heart they are an enemy of God have no wish to hear His name mentioned.

This was funny – from the Twitchy page comments:

Hey Ellen Page fans, THIS is what brave looks like.

The room must have died, en masse.

Schadenfreude on March 3, 2014 at 12:05 PM

Tons of nasty stuff on twitter directed at him just for saying the word “God”. People are just plain mean and hateful, not like he was preaching or anything. The gratitude he showed toward his late Dad and to his Mother were pretty noteworthy in my book but to the haters that doesn’t matter. Losers…

major dad on March 3, 2014 at 12:05 PM

I was stunned.

I wonder if this will spark a round of “well, I’ve always been a Christian, just never made it about me” confessions in Hollywood. Where it’s an art form to fake sincerity.

rbj on March 3, 2014 at 12:05 PM

good for you Matthew….

Praise God…those folks don’t know what they are missing, sad really

cmsinaz on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

I always had the impression Mathew McConaughey seems like a good guy….

OmahaConservative on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Makes his performance in True Detective all the more impressive.

strictnein on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

And I am sure Cate Blanchett got a standing ovation for thanking the pervert!

Sven on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Good for him. I did a little research today on the top grossing movies of 2013 and #1 was iron man an 3, with a slew of cartoons like Frozen, and Despicable me in the top 10. None of the Oscar nominees except Gravity came even close….. Obviously Hollywood is out of touch with what the public wants to watch

Almost like the reaction God got at the 2012 Democrat convention, isn’t it?

What was the DeGenerate’s reaction?

Sven on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Remember a couple months back when there was talk that Woody Allen’s pederast scandal would HURT her chances at the Oscar? I laughed then. It ENHANCED her chances. Hollywood still loves Roman Polanski after all.

God bless McConaughey and all of us.

strictnein on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 PM

Yes it does. For those who haven’t watched the series, McConaughey plays a nihilist who’s arguably on the verge of suicide most of his life. Both he and Woody Harrelson are fantastic in this series.

Ed Morrissey on March 3, 2014 at 12:08 PM

Somebody counted them up over numerous past years;

Merryl Streep has been thanked more than God at the Sewer Pipe awards.

Welp. McConaughey just lost a ton of work. Sad that the God-haters have so much power.

Exactly why I am surprised he get any applause at all, he didn’t kneel at the alter of their exalted perverted gods. He actually thanked God. I can’t believe they didn’t all faint at that.

onesheep on March 3, 2014 at 12:13 PM

Yes, he spoke against the popular culture in the room, and that is brave.

Did you also notice all the montages about heroes did not include any military or patriots?

Check him out in Frailty also. Almost jaw droppingly not anti-Christian(particularly the ending).

Dongemaharu on March 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

I didn’t get the impression Chet Cannon did.

I thought the audience was mostly quiet out of respect.

Mister Mets on March 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

didn’t watch much of it, though the rest of my family did; the bits that I saw/heard, Ellen D. was pretty good.

Midas on March 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

There sure wasn’t a lot of vocal support and cheering for God…

OmahaConservative on March 3, 2014 at 12:15 PM

in a recent episode of True Detective, McConaughey has a long soliloquy trashing Christians as fat and stupid. So don’t get too far ahead of yourselves.

Mitochondrion on March 3, 2014 at 12:15 PM

“No, man. I’ll tell you. That’s what I love about God, man. I get older. He stays the same age. Yes, he does.” – Wooderson

Has no recent Oscar winner mentioned God in an acceptance speech? I haven’t watched the show in years, but I find it a little difficult to believe that it’s that rare.

Actually, Ed, I haven’t watched every acceptance speech in recent memory, but I gotta tell you, I honestly can’t remember the last time an Oscar winner(at least one in a major category) thanked God. I was surprised when McConaughey went there last night. And I hate to say it, but I was not surprised one bit by the crowd’s muted response.

Doughboy on March 3, 2014 at 12:15 PM

Pretty pathetic that mentioning God is so controversial. But McConaughy just gained another fan. I think I will check out his True Detective show after all…

Jack_Burton on March 3, 2014 at 12:16 PM

Makes his performance in True Detective all the more impressive.

and his participation in “Magic Mike” just a little more puzzling.

Good Lt on March 3, 2014 at 12:17 PM

“None of the Oscar nominees except Gravity came even close…..”

I finally rented “Gravity” last night and I thought without a big screen and 3D for the special effects it was a very average science fiction/adventure movie. In the same vein as “Apollo 13″ but without as good a storyline and acting. Sandra Bullock’s acting was the usual servicable Sandra Bullock but nothing I would consider worthy of a Best Actress performance.

tommyboy on March 3, 2014 at 12:24 PM

I’m not a fan of True Detective and I thought he looked ill in Magic Mike, but he’s a good actor. I’m glad he had the guts to say what he did in front of that crowd.

DisneyFan on March 3, 2014 at 12:25 PM

For Heaven’s sake ~ he didn’t get up there and preach! I can’t see what the big deal is, other then the audience being the jacka$$es they were. His praise was SHORT, heart-felt and ever so sweet. Just perfect.

And then, what I thought was a truly heartwarming moment: what he said about his “Momma”. How she INSISTED her boys become MEN. MEN. Grow up to be responsible, MANLY adults.

You’ll notice NO ONE in that audience full of PC jacka$$es was hooting for him when he was talking about MASCULINE VIRTUES, either.

We could do with a few real MEN right about now.

tree hugging sister on March 3, 2014 at 12:26 PM

Ellen D. was pretty good.

Midas on March 3, 2014 at 12:14 PM

Hubby kept asking “What’s wrong with her?” about Ellen. He said, “She can’t read her lines without messing up.” I had to explain that the bumbling confused act is her comedy shtick. It’s supposed to make her endearing. He said, “It’s annoying.”

I’m pretty sure Octavia Spencer did a few years ago. (Best supporting actress for “The Help”). But it’s still almost expected of black actors. They are forgiven their religiosity. McConaughey won’t be, because he is a Southern White Male.

KOOLAID2 on March 3, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Also, I think what most stunned the audience was that they expected McConaughey to give an extended address about AIDS and the difficulty he had in getting “Dallas Buyers Club” made. That’s why they voted for him. They wanted to cheer for that. He gave them instead a very personal speech about himself, and about God. They had nothing to cheer for, until the end when he finally did his Dazed and Confused “alright alright alright.”

Yup. In Hollyweird His name can be and is used in cursing and mocking on screen and off, but don’t you dare thank Him sincerely in public, ON camera, LIVE and think you can’t get away with being chastised for such an ill-mannered, insensitive and intolerant remark directed to a mythical fictional figure.

He is 100% different then Rustin Chole but man yeah it did get awkward when he thanked God.

Yeah, that’s an actor acting. Lots of actors have played murderers, some have even played Hitler, doesn’t make them actual killers or Nazis. Last nights speech was McConaughey the man, not the actor.

And for those of you who haven’t seen True Detective, find a way to see it. Some of the best television this year. Harrelson and McConaughey are brilliant in this series.

But when the black woman sang about God in her thank you speech (“I sing because You are with me,” or something), she got a standing ovation.

What’s up with that?

Great actor…well deserved award.
He also had a great bit part in Wolf Of Wall Street.
His thanking God here was the most normal part of a bit of an odd acceptance speech.
But does these mean social cons will go and see Dallas Buyers Club now? I’m sure he knew those Hollywood types had all seen the film. But how to get lots more folks to come see a film about AIDS, drug addiction, transgendered folks…hmmm.
Jared Leto also excellent.
Safe to say God thought the film was quite good.
Great movie…if you haven’t seen it yet.

Blake on March 3, 2014 at 12:50 PM

Good on McConaughey for expressing his faith by thanking God during his aceptance speech. Understandably the 2nd largest uber Liberal, God-hating group outside the Democratic party (it seems), was mortified that he ‘came out of the closet’ and dared to invoke the almighty at their self-gratification awards ceremony. In 2007 comedian Kathy Griffin bassically summed up the Holloywood majority opinion of God at the Emmy Award ceremony.

At that awards ceremony, during her acceptance speech, Kathy said, “A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.” She went on to say,”Suck it, Jesus. This is my God now!” referring to the Emmy.

Regarding McConaughhey, one ‘tweeter’ reportedly remarked, “I thought we were going to get through one Oscar awards ceremony without someone mentioning God. F* you, Mathew McConaughey.”

WOW! Such vile, rabid, irrational HATRED for God and anyone who dares exercise their Constitutional freedom of speech by giving thanks to Him. What exactly is the difference between Democratic party and Al Qaeda/Muslim Extremist intolerance of religeous freedom and hatred of Christians?

easyt65 on March 3, 2014 at 12:51 PM
