"I could go on for an hour about Phil Hoffman", he said. He also added at the end of his speech, "This is for my friend, Phil Hoffman", dedicating the award to his friend, the late actor, Oscar victor and Fairport, NY, native Philip Seymour Hoffman. "In fact, he vowed to do a play a year, which I don't know if he got to do...but he was a great inspiration and a great theater director".

Hoffman died in February 2014 at age 46 from an accidental overdose.

Rockwell concluded his remarks by dedicating his win to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, whom he called "my old buddy".

"My mom and dad's love of movies became my love of movies", the Oscar victor said.

The society, however, has seemingly had a change of mindset and women are now being elected into leadership positions. It's your day, Happy Women's Day! He also said there was " ... still much room for improvement".

Sam Rockwell has revealed that he does not believe his character of Dixon in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri is redeemed at the end of the movie. "I did not see this coming, you did".

After endearing every Supporting Actor Award in every promising award ceremonial this year, Rockwell just made his remarkable run in Hollywood even more special as he took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 90th Annual Academy Awards for his tremendous performance in "Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri". "Philip Seymour Hoffman was a good friend and he was a huge, huge inspiration on me".

"My mom and dad's love of movies became my love of movies - so thank you mom and dad, I love you", he added, also thanking writer-director Martin McDonagh ("I want to do 10 other movies with you, I love you"), the rest of the film's cast and crew, "everyone involved in Three Billboards" and "everybody who's ever looked at a billboard". "In real life, they probably would have gone to prison".
