Vancouver Canucks winger and master thespian Daniel Sedin took home the hardware Sunday night, beating out Daniel Day-Lewis and his brother Henrik, among others, at the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
“A lot of you probably thought I wouldn’t be here tonight because of the way I collapsed to the ice this afternoon in Detroit,” said Sedin during his acceptance speech. “But that was just acting!”
After crediting his naturally wobbly knees and complete lack of respect for the game, Sedin thanked his brother Henrik for a lifetime of support and guidance.
“Henrik has won three of these, so obviously I’ve learned a lot from him,” said Daniel, pointing to his visibly-jealous twin brother in the audience. “But really, it’s an honor to be named among the likes of all the actors here tonight.”
Looking at Daniel Day-Lewis, who was nominated for his tour de force performance in Lincoln, Sedin bowed his head.
“From one Daniel to another, your performance as a great American president will inspire me to be a great Canadian flopper for years to come.”
