Keaton won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Comedy for his work in Birdman, and, when he took the stage, the actor gushed over his son, saying, “My best friend is kind, intelligent, funny, talented, considerate, thoughtful – did I say kind? He also happens to be my son, Sean. I love you with all my heart, buddy,” Keaton said, getting teary eyed.
Keaton’s heartfelt message had many reaching for the tissue box, but the cut away shot to his son had Twitter abuzz, with many declaring him their new crush of the evening.
