Mensagem:  Just a small correction:

he screwed up himself

he screwed himeself up

The phrasal verb "to screw up" is separable. That means the object can stay either after the phrasal verb or between the two words. However, if you substitute the object by a pronoun (like you did!), you must place this pronoun between the two words of the phrasal verb.
