Robert Downey Jr. won Best Supporting Actor at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards and chose to share negative reviews from his past performances during his acceptance speech.

He thanked his “Oppenheimer” co-stars and referred to them as his “Oppenhomies.”

“I was thinking this morning, I love critics. … You know, they’ve given me such beautiful feedback, really just so many great moments, and some of it is so poetic,” Downey Jr. said.

“I just want to share some of their thoughts with you over the years,” he said.

“The first one is kind of like Haiku: ‘Sloppy, messy and lazy.’ The next one is more metaphoric: ‘Like Pee-Wee Herman emerging from a coma.’ This was from a Brit: ‘A puzzling waste of talent.’ And lastly, and this one lingered: ‘Amusing as a bed-locked fart,’” Downey Jr. read.

“Every day of filming was like having my ego’s a– handed to me at the door, and I think it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy,” he joked.

The actor played Lewis Strauss in the film, which was highly successful and received numerous award nominations.
