Sean Penn Wins Oscar for "Milk" Acceptance Speech

I'm delighted to see Sean Penn win the Oscar for Milk, and especially delighted to see the reaction the Academy has for him, as illustrated by the standing ovation he receives.

For so long he was considered an outsider by mainstream Hollywood and it is simply great to see how much they now respect him. His speech is wonderful, and I especially loved his reference to Mickey Rourke at the end, especially as Mickey Rourke has been saying some odd things about Penn of late. Class.
