Matthew McConaughey wants award to inspire kids

Mar 3 2014, 11:26am CST | by

Matthew McConaughey hopes his Oscar win will inspire his children.

The 44-year-old actor - who has children Levi, five, Vida, three, and Livingston, 14 months, with wife Camila Alves - picked up the Best Actor prize for 'Dallas Buyers Club' last night (03.02.14) and wants it to teach his kids they can achieve their dreams if they work hard.

He said: "The lesson that they'll hopefully kind of get is that whatever you're going to do, if you put your head down and do it as well as you can right now, sometimes a little reward comes your way later in life."

Matthew revealed his kids would have seen his win as they were tuning in at home.

He said: "My family is very obviously important to me as anybody's family is. My kids are at home, they're watching Pappy and we told them, 'What is tonight about?' They said, 'Pappy is up for an award with four other men that they're deeming excellent work in what I do'.

"I think they understand that Dad did good tonight."

Though the 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor was thrilled by his win and is thankful for his achievements, both personally and professionally, he insists he has more to do.

He told 'Access Hollywood': "I've got so much in my life to be thankful for and there's still so much more to do. There's so much to be thankful for and I find the more that I can be thankful for the things that I do have, the more I nurture those things, the better they grow."

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY & BRYAN CRANSTON Big Winners At 2014 TCA Awards

Jul 20 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: I'm Not Obsessed

30th Annual Television Critics Association Awards
The Television Critics Awards (TCA) don’t get as much attention as other awards shows because they aren’t televised. However, they can be a good sign of things to come at the Primetime Emmys, which are next month, so the 2014 TCA winners are still interesting to see. ‘Breaking Bad’ won big, as did Matthew McConaughey’s HBO show, ‘True Detective.’ Apparently the TCAs lets winners know ahead of time to help ensure th ...

Anonymous Content & HBO Celebrates The Golden Globes In Anticipation Of The Premiere Of HBO's "True Detective"
A smattering of Emmy make-goods and perhaps a bit of prognosticating, winners of the 2014 Television Critics Association Awards run the gamut from the expected (True Detective and Orange Is the New Black) to complete surprises (RuPaul's Drag Race).Perhaps the biggest referendum among the 13 honorees is The Good Wife. The CBS drama, coming off of a critically-lauded sixth season, earned the kudo for outstanding achievement in drama. That honor comes just a week after its abs ...

Jerry Seinfeld Performs At Hard Rock Live
One of the appeals of sport is that, in the stands and in the bleachers, all spectators may consider themselves equal. Sure there are box seats close to the action, and there are nosebleed seats that may or may not require binoculars for some, but as far as witnessing the spirit of competition is concerned, all fans are on the same level. In modern society, many have come to look up to celebrities. Whether a celebrity be an actor or actress, a musician, a politician, or an athlete themselves, ...
