McConaughey Oscar speech blowback: Thanking God in the midst of assembled idolaters deemed insensitive, by some.


Hollywood star Matthew McConaughey, 44, triggered a love-hate reaction and a viral video Sunday when he thanked God profusely after winning the best actor Oscar for his role as Ron Woodroof in “Dallas Buyer’s Club.”

“There’s three things that I need each day. One of them is something to look up to, another is something to look forward and another is someone to chase,” he said in the run-up to his acknowledgment of God.

  1. I did not watch the Oscars, and haven’t in years. McConaughey’s recognition of and gratitude to God are worth little-to-no recognition. They are typical of the for-public-consumption boilerplate often heard during media events.

    He’ll have to do better than that to impress me.

  2. I, did not watch, the Oscar’s .but I have seen the video, of the Oscar Winner, thanking God, for his Win!
    What a Refreshing change, to see God receive Glory, among the Non- Believers, on their way to the Wide Gate!!!
    The Wide Gate entry does NOT need a ticket…..
