Yes, Brother McConaughey! Speak it!

Right now, there are motivational speakers all over America studying Matthew McConaughey's acceptance speech for actor like football coaches study game tape. Seriously, everyone is probably wondering how the romantic comedy guy who was allergic to shirts has somehow transformed into such a dynamic and weirdly hypnotic public speaker. He told the audience he's had a great run of characters to play. "I would humble myself to their humanities and then get feverishly drunk on their obsessions," he said. And that was part of the speech that kind of made sense. Never mind, the sheer energy of it makes you want to stand up and do ... something. During the commercial break, of course.
