Colin Farrell, you're nothing but a big ol' teddy bear, aren't you?

First you shocked us, sniffling through your presenter's script and then explaining, “I still have a cold. It’s not the other thing it used to be.” Then you made us shmoopy after your surprise win for your role in "In Bruges." "I’ve never been so at peace with being ignored in my life. It’s seldom that you get a script that’s as simultaneously profound and beautifully comic and wonderfully painful, filled with delightful remorse, and, more than anything else, the sweetest, sweetest redemptive qualities. And that was 'In Bruges' for me. To work with [director Martin McDonagh] was a dream. And I love you. You know, I’ll ride Sally’s coattails and start talking about love a bit because at the end of the day, I think what we all do in some way, shape, or form — I hate to wax lyrical — is about love. Curiosity is love. It’s ignorance’s nemesis. And so thank you, Martin. [Costar Brendan Gleeson], I love you dearly. And this is at least half of yours. I’ll cut it when I get off stage, and you can have a hemisphere."
