The Sag Awards – Knock 'em Dead Mickey RourkeBy
The Sag Awards, or Screen Actor Guild Awards, could have taken on a new meaning from one of the nominee’s tonight, the sagging career of Mickey Rourke seems to have gotten a face lift.
Being nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Best Male Actor in a Leading Role as Randy in The Wrestler, Rourke may yet again, walk away with another little bobble to put on his fire place.
I say rock on Rourke, it’s good to see someone pick themselves up by the bootstraps and get back in the game, no matter the rumors that have flown around for years. The daunting pictures of a not so well preserved Rourke.
It was obvious at the Golden Globes he was stunned to have won, I thought he was quite gracious, stating he was not a good speaker in public, acknowledging the Director that had to fight for him to be in this role, since his name was not worth anything.
Bad Boys & Underdogs, I guess I am a sucker for both, bruised, beaten and almost a has been in the film industry – let’s hope Rourke knocks ’em out again. He may not be pretty, but he’s still got it!.
