Wow, such a close one...I still can't believe I won.
And I know I'll never win an Oscar, so I'll give this my best shot...
First off, I will not thank my future self.
Instead, I would like to thank RottenAtom for graciously putting this together; if it weren't for him, this yearly fun-filled Rotten Oscars wouldn't exist, and the adrenaline certainly wouldn't be pumping like crazy during the Oscars viewing session!
Second, I'd like to thank binky79, woodrowgus, RottenAtom and anyone else I missed that generously donated wonderful prizes! Third, I'd like to congratulate cerebus, RottenAtom, trarex, CSmiley317, choke, paulcliff, beatlejuiceebeans, revmod,and brettlv506 for all tying for a close 2nd!
Finally, I'd like to thank God for my Mom and Dad, who courageously decided to have me, keep me, and take care of me, even though they couldn't afford to have or raise a baby at the young and impressionable age of 17. And yes, they certainly could've chosen another way out. Instead, they set aside their own goals and dreams to love and bring up a child, depite barely having enough to get by. Eternally grateful for their love and sacrifice, and for all the parents here on EB and out there in the world, who sacrifice so much for your kids, because you love them more than life itself.
You are true heroes in this world...especially in the eyes of your little boy or girl. Thank you for being present to love and raise the next generation of teachers, lawmakers, filmmakers, actors, philanthropists, ministers, counselors, doctors, firefighters, officers, scientists, engineers, inventors, musicians, artists, full-time parents, poster collectors and contenders...
of Rotten Oscars.
Much love and thanks,
