Despite the fact that Mickey Rourke won “Best Actor” awards at the Golden Globes, BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) and the Award and Film Independent’s Spirit Award shows for his role as Randy “The Ram” Robinson in “The Wrestler”, he came up short last night at the Academy Awards. The Best Actor Oscar was awarded to Sean Penn for his role in “Milk”.
Telegraph.co.uk spoke to Mickey Rourke this weekend, who said he’d rather have more time with his beloved Chihuahua Loki, who passed away last week, than win an Oscar. “It’s bittersweet. I said to myself I’d rather have Loki for another two years than an Oscar. And I told her that. But she stayed as long as she could, you know.” He added, “She’s the love of my life. She made it until six days ago. She left me at a time where, after 18 years, she knew I’d be all right.”
WWE.com has an article up today about the Oscar snub and notes that the actor plans to attend the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania as a guest of WWE.
