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.

I think he's playing a big joke on all of us. Otherwise, hei's a fool and Casey is too for going along with it. Joaquin is trying to get his personal life in order. His girlfriend, Christy Joiner is a musician too and I am sure she's encouraging him.

OMG! I'm embarrased for him! Whoever the hell told him he had rhythm, must be deaf. He can't rap, he can't move, and evidently, he can't afford disposable razors!

He makes Federline, look like Eminem, for crap's sake (no offense to Eminem).

Whatever hallucinogenic drugs he's tripping on...someone get him an intervention! Boy has flipped!

why?    

Joaquin has a propensity to fake out the media, also his sense of humor is legendary in some circles. This man is brilliant and one of the most talented actors we have today. I think he is funny as f@#$! He hates TMZ types, absolutely loathes them and would stop at nothing to make monkeys out of them. Never fear...Joaquin has not turned to drugs and alcohol, he just doesn't care if you think so. He is kind-of like Johnny cash that way, he is a totally finger at you type of guy. I can't wait ti see what he does next.
