We see this a lot at sporting events, but not a lot of it from the entertainment industry. When someone from Hollywood gets up and thanks God, especially at the Oscars, it makes headlines … which says volumes about Hollywood and the media.
At least they didn’t boo God, which means that Hollywood is still a little ahead of the Democratic Party’s 2012 convention performance.
Update: Via Twitchy, one MTV host even noticed the stunned reaction:
Mathew McConaughey seems like a really good man. Did you notice when he thanked God, the audience nearly took his award away? #Oscars
