Lake Effect presents “Since You Never Asked” - a new series from contributor and essayist Jonathan West. This week, Jonathan rehearses his Oscar acceptance speech:
Since you never asked…
…here is my Academy Award acceptance speech. You’ll hear it again, of course, when I win all the Oscars.
(Clears throat.) Uh, hmm.
Mr. George Clooney, when you just tore open that envelope and said my name, I literally could not believe my ears. I’m thrilled that I can now call you, “the handsome man who read my name off of a card.”
