Flip’s Oscar Acceptance Speech!

After finding out on Facebook that he won the Oscar Giveaway, Flip Sanborn posted his acceptance speech on my wall.  It may have just as well been televised. After all, we’re talkin’ about Facebook here, and we all know the power of “The Social Network.”

Flip was really happy and gracious, but unfortunately, he didn’t get Halle Berry style hysterical which is what I was hoping for. But anyway, with grace and humility, here is Flip’s speech:

“Oh my word, I’m so freekin’ happy rite now. First of all i would like to thank all my family, who, if they hadn’t kicked me out of my home when i was 13, I wouldnt have lived behind the big screen at the theater and gotten all my movie knowledge. Second to all my friends who I booze it up with all the time, I can use the shot glasses, yeah baby!  Third to Celeste, who, if she hadn’t had this contest, well, you all know….. Finally, I want to thank all the little people;  the tux rental place who left the suit that I will be wearing at the acceptence ceremony out back of their shop to air out, to Razor Ray, our local barber, because without him i wouldnt look so stylish.  Well, I could go on and on but I won’t (cause im actually getting a blister on my two typing fingers). Just want to say thanks to all the people who entered this awesome  contest. Sorry you guys blew it, but there can be only one winner and its ME, thank you thank you, thank you, till the next contest….later! (now teboing in my living room )”

On his way to the Oscars!

Take that Clooney!! I’d like to see him top that speech tonight.  By the way, I saw The Artist last night. I really liked it and now I think that is going to get “Best Picture.”

Congratulations again to Flip on his big win, and I hope all of you enjoy the Oscars!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....
