Image Credit: Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesMark Ruffalo didn’t win the Best Supporting Actor trophy last night — that honor went to Christian Bale — but the Kids Are All Right star took to Twitter yesterday before the ceremony to offer an extended thank-you to his co-workers, support staff, friends and family. The 17 tweets might have earned Ruffalo some play-off music on the telecast, but in text form they’re charming, moving, and quite funny. (They also reconfirm that Mark Ruffalo is so cool, he makes you want to be a better person, just so you can be earn the ultimate reward of being reincarnated as Mark Ruffalo in your next life.) Check out Ruffalo’s full tweet-acceptance after the jump…
