Michael Keaton's Heartfelt Golden Globes Shoutout Puts Son in Spotlight

Michael Keaton gave a heartfelt, tearjerker of an acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards Sunday night, telling the audience that Sean Douglas, his only son, is his "best friend."

"My name's Michael John Douglas, I'm from Forest Grove, Pennsylvania. I'm the son — seventh child — of George and Leona Douglas. And I don't ever remember a time when my father didn't work two jobs. When my mother wasn't saying the rosary or going to mass or trying to take care of seven kids in a rundown farmhouse, she was volunteering at the Ohio Valley Hospital where I was born in the hallway," he told the star-studded audience while accepting his award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, USA Today reported.

"I've got six wonderful brothers and sisters. I have some tremendous, tremendously loving and generous friends all over the world. 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," he continued, getting choked up.

As the camera panned to Sean, who was in attendance, Twitter users' hearts went fluttering.






As it turns out, Sean Douglas is not only easy on the eyes, but Page Six reported after the show that he's a talented artist himself. He's a big time music producer and songwriter, recently contributing the new track "Ghosttown" to Madonna's new album. He also produced Jason Derulo’s hit songs "Talk Dirty" and "Wiggle" as well as Demi Lovato’s "Heart Attack."

Before departing the stage, Keaton also thanked "Birdman" director Alejandro González Iñárritu for casting him, giving him one of the highest compliments an auteur could ask for.

"Alejandro, there's not a person in this room who won't show up for your next gig my brother. I'm telling you, just name the place, you name the time, and, not just me, there's not an actor or actress in this room who won't show up."
