The 49-year-old star nabbed the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture at Sunday's Golden Globes, topping Christopher Plummer, Richard Jenkins, Armie Hammerand Willem Dafoefor the honor. The Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri actor kicked off his speech joking, "I'm a little excited. I may need this piece of paper. I may need some Immodium."
After thanking co-star Woody Harrelson and the film's writer and director, Martin McDonagh, "for not being a dick," Rockwell turned his attention to the film's lead actress, Frances McDormand.
"You're a badass. You're a force of nature," he gushed. "It was really fun to be your sparring partner and thanks for making me a better actor."
He also praised his longtime love Leslie Bibb, who sweetly smooched him -- and then made sure to wipe her lipstick from his face -- before he took the stage.
"My hilarious and beautiful Leslie Bibb," he concluded the speech, "who makes me laugh when I take myself too seriously -- which happens a lot."
