One of my favorite movie moments of all times, let alone ones that feature Diane Lane. I could watch this scene on repeat and never tire of it. This is when Diane Lane sings Billie Holiday’s “Am I Blue?” at the opening of her club, Vera’s, in Francis Ford Coppola’s underrated classic, The Cotton Club. Diane Lane is my favorite actress of all time. She can do no wrong, which is apparent in this clip.
Mickey lost the Oscar. My heart is shattered. I hate the Academy. You can’t make up for not passing Prop 8 (like you should have) by giving Sean Penn the Oscar for Milk.
I just want to say to you all tonight I’m very grateful to be here. A lot of people told me that I’d never wrestle again and that’s all I do. You know, if you live hard and play hard and you burn the candle at both ends, you pay the price for it. You know in this life you can loose everything you love, everything that loves you. Now I don’t hear as good as I used to and I forget stuff and I aint as pretty as I used to be but god damn it I’m still standing here and I’m The Ram. As times goes by, as times goes by, they say “he’s washed up”, “he’s finished” , “he’s a loser”, “he’s all through”. You know what? The only one that’s going to tell me when I’m through doing my thing is you people here.
Best Movie Speech Ever. No wonder Mickey helped write it.
Who Knew Selma Blair was so cool?
