“Mom, do you want my green stuff?”
~Matt Damon’s Actual First Line of Dialogue in a Film, Ever
Outside of winning the lottery or having a trust fund, success typically is earned through hard work and dedication. You have to start from somewhere. That’s most easily noticeable in the careers of actors, who work their way up to reach stardom and, as a result, tend to have some strange and unusual roles in their early acting days. For as much as gossip magazine try to emphasize “Stars go grocery shopping, JUST LIKE US!” they’re probably better off demonstrating that sentiment by, say, showing Ben Affleck do a Burger King commercial before he got famous.
Even the actors who seemingly broke out of nowhere had to put in their dues, and that American quality for hard work is something we support, even when we go out of our way to find the most embarrassing early career film choices of famous people in order to poke fun at them.

Vodka that fucker up. Have yourself a 60 oz. cup of one of those Mountain Dew flavors that’s blue and only available through Taco Bell? Boom, add some vodka and suddenly that haphazardly folded together 1 lb. bean and potato burrito is the most delicious thing you’ve ever eaten. Did you randomly find a glass filled with some unrecognizable liquid on the street corner? Vodka would probably make it safe to drink. Maybe? Right?
And while most Americans find themselves unwilling to shell out for any vodka fancier than, say, Chopin, some people find themselves choose to spend excessive amounts of money on a flavorless spirit just so they can tell themselves that they’re important and relevant, no matter how many times their mistresses make fun of their distressingly small genitalia.

That’s why we decided to do something about it, and forcibly steal other actors’ hard earned Oscars and give them to more worthy recipients. So, here, please see our final two American Oscar Award winners.
