Sam Rockwell dedicates Oscar to Philip Seymour Hoffman

In his speech, Rockwell managed to thank seemingly everybody, including his co-nominees: Richard Jenkins, Christopher Plummer, Willem Dafoe, and his Three Billboards co-star Woody Harrelson for their unbelievable work in film this year. During his acceptance speech, Rockwell mentioned his fellow nominees by name, saying, "You guys rock".

Sam Rockwell has revealed that he does not believe his character of Dixon in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri is redeemed at the end of the movie.

"He inspired me and I could go on for an hour about Phil Hoffman", he continued.

Sam Rockwell has carved out a career filled with critically acclaimed performances, and now he's an Oscar victor thanks to his work in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Having recently set up governments in Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur, the party's Mission North East is coming together. She also accused the BJP of tampering with electronic voting machines and expressed surprise on CPI-M's silence on the issue.

Upon accepting his award, Rockwell praised his cast and crew and jokingly thanked "anyone who's ever looked at a billboard". "My mom and dad's love of movies became my love of movies, so, thank you for that, mom and dad, I love you", he said. While McDonagh has won an Oscar in the past-for 2004 short Six Shooter-he was a notable snub in the Best Director category this year, despite big wins at the Golden Globes, the BAFTA Awards and other awards predictors.

"I'd like to thank the Academy ..." The actor dedicated his award to legendary veteran actor and his friend Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Backstage, Rockwell addressed some of the criticism aimed at "Three Billboards" over its treatment of race relations. The film is also nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Actress for Frances McDormand.
