I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Joel Courtney

Actor Joel Courtney. You may recognize him as Joe Lamb in Super 8. If you don't recognize him from Super 8 then you just plain don't recognize him. Unless you see the minor resemblance to my friend Jamey Hungerford. Joel Courtney has never been in another movie in his life. I think this nails home how amazing his performance in Super 8 is so great. Like Max Records in 2009 and Hailee Steinfeld in 2010, this year's best actor is a child. Unfortunately, the academy will never recognize Joel Courtney. And that's why we have to honor him here. Great work, Joel. Keep it up!
