Robin Wright Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction While Accepting Best Actress In TV Series - Drama At the 2014 Golden Globes
Robin Wright, who won Best Actress in a TV Drama at Sunday night’s 2014 Golden Globe Awards for her work on Netflix’s House of Cards, suffered the only wardrobe malfunction of the evening while accepting her trophy.
Wright, who plays the calculating Claire Underwood in the Netflix original series opposite Kevin Spacey’s Francis Underwood, was clearly surprised by her win when she got up on stage to accept her award.
“Completely unexpected. I have no speech,” Wright began.
Wright made reference to Merritt Weaver’s short and sweet speech at the 2013 Emmy Awards, saying she wished she could do the same. As she motioned backstage, Wright turned and her halter dress became a bit dislodged. It was not a tragic wardrobe malfunction, however. Wright ended up flashing the camera a bit of her pasty on her right side as the Reem Acra gown shifted a bit. As far as wardrobe malfunctions go, Wright’s is extremely tame, and many did not notice a thing. In fact, Wright made no move to fix her gown onstage, and was perhaps not even aware of it herself.
Wright delivered a short speech, thanking the cast and crew of House of Cards and the Hollywood Foreign Press, while new fiancé Ben Foster looked on adoringly from the audience.
“Thank you [director David] Fincher for convincing me to do this, because he said, ‘You can create her.’ Kevin [Spacey] you’re the best play date ever,” Wright said.
Backstage following her win, Wright laughed about her win and expressed her shock, saying, “I’m in shock right now. I don’t know what’s going on exactly.”
This was Wright’s first Golden Globes win, having only been nominated once before, in 1995, for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for her role in Forrest Gump.
