Matthew McConaughey has been racking up awards for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club this season, so it's no surprise he's got the art of the acceptance speech down to a science.

"If I start with 'All right, all right, all right,' and 'Thank you,' I really can't go wrong," McConaughey said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday. (The actor's SAG Awards speech proved that Neptune references are also a plus.)

Kimmel then asked McConaughey what his game plan for the Oscars was, and the True Detective star will apparently be staying the course: "First three words that I ever said on film, which were, 'All right, all right, all right,' " he answered, referring to his famous line from 1993's Dazed and Confused.

Though we'd like to note that "All right, all right, all right" is actually six words, we can't wait to hear McConaughey's speech if he wins.
