Upon accepting the award, Jackson spoke on his long friendship with Washington, saying, "We've come a long way and done a lot of things." He said he was "really, really proud" to receive the statuette and concluded, "Thanks to every person who has ever bought a ticket to any movie I was in. It's truly been an honor and a pleasure to entertain you."

You and everyone else already know he’s cool, but here are a bunch of bada** facts about the actor that prove just why he’s the ultimate bada**. Click on!
