Brian, it's "graduated from -------" not "graduated -----"

Enough already with how great his speech was. Hearing it again just reinforced for me that it was nothing special. he made a moderately, sort of funny remark about his hair. How about the writer for THe King's Speech telling his story about overcoming his stutter? Or how about Tom Hooper telling us that he got the tip on the story from his mom.

He was so charming at the Oscars that his personality will probably draw in even more viewers for his film than the Oscar itself - congratulations, Luke!

please ask luke how he financed NYU film school. it's not cheap, which deters many prospective students.
