Joaquin Phoenix: Thanks Academy -- For Nothing

1/17/2009 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joaquin Phoenix has made the worst career choice since "Ishtar," and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is squarely to blame.

Click to Watch! -- Joaquin Phoenix
Watch this video of Joaquin "performing" last night at Lavo in Las Vegas. Clearly fueled by his Oscar nomination in "Walk the Line," the delusional former actor has given up a promising career for a Federline future. There's an epic fall in there too.

Rap sucks anyway but I think he's a fabulous actor and it's time to find himself in another great movie!

Oh my, this isn't going to end well. This is a very sad train wreck, He's so talented and this path that he's on is leading to tragedy. Someone needs to help him ASAP.

Good-bye and good riddance!! Never liked this guy and can't wait for him to totally fall off the face of the earth. He can join the ranks of all the celebrities who can't handle the fame, can't keep their political opinions to themselves and can't respect those who have made them what they are today. His whole "hippy" family was always weird!!

I think this is what happens when the people youu surround yourself with won't tell you the truth. Hopefully---he will watch this video and rethink everything.

Buwahahahahaha    

People - Please! Don't you recongnize a dude pullin' a 2008 Brittney by now? He's lost his marbles and doesn't know where to find them. Add that to a genetic propensity for drug abuse, and this guy is just one toe tag short of a 5150 hold.

Talent? Marginal. Most of his movies were M. Night Shama-langa-ding-dong over productions.

I think he has 'issues'. He needs someone to manage him, and get him the medicine he needs.

Either this guy is playing us ala Ashton Kutcher's punk'd show against the media, or he is in need of a "stop the madness" intervention.

Granted, he did sound better than Kanye. . . .

He's totally pulling a prank, you guyz gotta see that!
Come on! He has a giant whistling solo in the middle, what is sillier than that??
He's a funny bastard, TMZ douches don't know a joke when they see it.
He does his own thing, this had a very Zoolander feel.
The guy's brilliant. He's got an amazing voice you see from Walk the Line, he's doing this just to mess with everyone, to be wacky and awesome.
