Mickey Rourke was awesome in 'The Wrestler,' so why the hate?

After swooping in and swiping the best actor award out from the ready hands of Sean Penn and Brad Pitt, Rourke thanked director Darren Aronofsky. “He hates when I say he’s tough, but he’s one tough son of a bitch.” Aronofsky gave him the bird – on camera! Then the music came, and swelled him off stage. Jeez, can't a guy have his moment?
