Jeff Bridges’s Acceptance Speech: Just the Wacky Parts

Jeff Bridges won a richly deserved Best Actor Oscar last night for his performance as a broken-down country singer in Crazy Heart. In the process, he reminded us that one of his other great performances, as The Big Lebowski's Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski, maybe wasn’t so much of a stretch. Man, that acceptance speech was a bit loopy, huh? Check it out again below, this time condensed down to just its most essential wacky bits. Warning: lots of bemused chuckling ahead.
