Tough that he beat Mickey Rourke. I personally felt Rourke's personal experience in his film was a far better movie than MILK. I can't take anything away from Penn. I have loved his movies since I was a kid. His character inspired gays and lesbians everywhere. Rourke's inspired millions of others to do what you believe in.

Penn is a pin head. He sucks. He hates the typical citizen in this country. He means nothing and has no value.......

I was glad to see Sean Penn win the Oscar after I saw the way Mickey Rourke showed up. Rourke looked like a complete wanker with that costume and hairdo he was wearing.

Although Penn had a few issues with the paparazzi a couple decades ago, he seems to have turned out to be a pretty decent guy. He has dome some great work in fighting for equal rights for Americans, as well as his efforts against the unjust Iraq war, and his aid in the Katrina disaster.

Sean Penn is telling everyone that ALL humans should be equal and have rights, yet he hangs out with people like Hugo Chavez and the Castros.
Do some research!

This from a guy that never said anything about the classic freak attire prevalent on display at every alternative lifestyle parade. Sean Penn didn't deserve the award and it just shows how misplaced Hollywood's priorities are to present it to him so he could go out on stage and trumpet their support for same sex marriages. The same goes for Kate Winslett's Oscar. She played a Nazi that was a pedophile. Hollywood promotes a sick agenda and is the predominant contributor to the decadence in America today.

Yeah....right....
Kate Winslet should not have been rewarded for her talent and perfomance because you didn't like the character she played...that makes SO much sense.
It's equally funny how you so-called "christians" don't think Penn should have won the Oscar for the same reason... because you don't like the character he played.

It's sure OK for Anthony Hopkins to win the Oscar for playing a psychotic homicidal cannibal, but when Penn plays a gay man he should be snubbed because that's "wrong."

It's not about who they played but how they played it. Yet, it is Penn who turned the evening into an issue. What happened to "Thank You" for the award. Haven't we had our fill of political speak???

I'm with you 100%. Sick of the Hollywood people shoving their political and social views down our throats every time they get a camera on them, whether I agree with them or not. They should just take their prize, say thank you, and get off.

The Oscar is for an acting performance, not for who he hangs out with. He wasnt elected first Jesus. he got an award for following a script and playing a role. Thats all.

Geez, some of you people have actually paid money to watch these movies. All you gotta do is turn on Entertainment Tonight or the HLN channel for all the latest Hollywood stuff in real time or get ATT Uverse, they have a full time gay/lesbian channel available if that's you thing.
If people are looking to Penn or Winslet for hero worship and/or inspiration may God or Allah have mercy on them. IMO

Don't like the parades? Quit finding out when and where they are going to be, and stop going.

Hollywood is a positive influence on America, and you sat "decadence" like it's a bad thing.

BTW, stupid, MOST movies are going to have a "good guy" and a "bad guy".

I LOVE the fact Penn has pissed off the right wing homophobes. That's reason enough to admire him!
