Three cheers for Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey: ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT! With his much-discussed McConaissance in full flower, the veteran actor was finally acknowledged by the Academy last night, winning the Best Actor Oscar for his fine work in ‘Dallas Buyers Club.’ As longtime followers and fans, we couldn’t be happier for him. As the pervs that we are, we just hope that getting that long-awaited respect from the industry doesn’t preclude Matthew from appearing in ‘Magic Mike 2‘!
In just a few days, our beloved Matthew McConaughey might become “Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey.” This is splendid news for those of us who have been following his career since his very first movie, ‘Dazed and Confused.’ It is wonderful thought for those of us who have been championing his Oscar chances since ‘Magic Mike.’ His amazing performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ has definitely been the apex of his recent McConaissance, and to see him accept the award for Best Actor on Sunday night would be a lot more than all right. It would be “All right, all right, all right!”
For this Throwback Thursday, we take a look back at the beginnings of Matthew’s glorious, mostly shirtless career. We don’t think an Oscar would go to his head, nor do we think it would stop him from stripping on screen. Everybody’s a winner, so go ahead and enjoy these photos of Matthew McConaughey young, hot and shirtless:

All right, all right, all right! Channing Tatum has FINALLY started work on ‘Magic Mike 2,’ the breathlessly anticipated sequel to the People’s Best Picture of 2012. Chan posted a photo of him hard at work writing the script on his Instagram and Twitter accounts yesterday. He’s clad in a fedora in an office, staring at his muse. And what is that he’s using for inspiration? Yes, that’s a bust of Matthew McConaughey, aka the original’s dear old Dallas!

We couldn’t love it any more — except we totally could! Since sequels need to do everything BIGGER, we think ‘Magic Mike 2′ should show even more skin than the first one. And here’s what we think Channing should be using for inspiration this time around …
What more does Matthew McConaughey have to do to get an Oscar nod?*
As sleazy stripper-impresario Dallas in the great “Magic Mike,” Matthew put the “man” in “perforMANce,” chewing the almighty hell outta the scenery and dropping trou with equal vigor, leading some — including us — to call him a dark horse candidate for a Best Supporting Actor nomination. Alas, it wasn’t to be. All this for nothing! Well, at least WE were pleased. Very.
* Don’t say lose an alarming amount of weight… just don’t.
I prefer him nekkid like in “Magic Mike,” but if leather it must be … fine.

Here’s what you hold-outs need to know about “Magic Mike”: The stripping scenes are positively electric, but even the talking parts are tolerable. Go see it!
And, as hot as I am for the other stars of “Magic Mike” — and believe me, I am — and as super-fine as Channing Tatum’s ass is (oh God, and how), Matthew McConaughey simply owns the movie. OWNS it!!!
He takes obvious delight in tapping into his sleazy “Dazed and Confused” side, and you will no doubt delight in his scenery-grinding performance, from its sexy start to its very fleshy finish.
Best Supporting Actor nod, anyone? Hey, I’m not the only one who thinks so!
