Hollywood star Mickey Rourke stole the show at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday very funny acceptance speech. The star filled crowd at the Santa Monica, California ceremony gave the 56-year-old actor a standing ovation when he stepped onstage to collect the Best Male prize for his role as a washed up grappler in The Wrestler. During his crazy speech, he dedicated the award to his beloved pet dog Loki, who died this week, threatened to beat up comedian Rainn Wilson, who had impersonated him in an earlier skit, forgot the name of his The Wrestler co-star Marisa Tomei; and broke his microphone all on live TV. He said, "That little blond dude who did that thing (Wilson), I’m going to beat your ass when I get out of here. . I’ve got thousands of letters about my dog that died six days ago. Loki, Loki, this is for you baby." And he needed help from the audience when he forgot to thank Tomei, who played a stripper in the film. He said, "My memory ain’t that good. I want to thank….." and paused, prompting the crowd to yell "Marisa". He responded by saying, "Melissa? Marisa? Marisa Tomei. She had to do all this bare-a**ed. Not many girls can climb the poll. She climbed the poll and she did it well." The Wrestler also won the Best Feature award and the Best Cinematography prize for Maryse Alberti.There were also wins for Best Female Melissa Leo, Best Supporting Female Penelope Cruz, Best Supporting Male James Franco and Best Director Tom McCarthy.The full list of winners is as follows: Best Feature: The Wrestler Best Director: Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) Best First Feature: Synecdoche, New York Best Screenplay: Woody Allen (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) Best First Screenplay: Dustin Lance Black (Milk) Best Female Lead: Melissa Leo (Frozen River) Best Male Lead: Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) Best Supporting Female: Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) Best Supporting Male: James Franco (Milk) Best Cinematography: Maryse Alberti (The Wrestler) Best Documentary: Man On Wire Best Foreign Language Film: The Class Robert Altman Award: Director Charlie Kaufman and the ensemble cast of Synecdoche, New York Someone To Watch Award: Lynn Shelton (My Effortless Brilliance) Truer Than Fiction Award: Margaret Brown (The Order Of Myths) Producers Award: Heather Rae (Frozen River and Ibid)
