FRANCES MCDORMAND GETS SILLY IN SAG PRESS ROOM
McDormand, 60, won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role at Sunday’s awards. As such, she was responsible for one of the three awards that Three Billboards won. Her co-star Sam Rockwell won the corresponding award for a male actor, and the entire cast took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Theatrical Motion Picture.
McDormand gave a humorous and lovely acceptance speech and the crowd cheered. “Representation. Those tireless men and women who represent us truly – our desires, our dreams, our individual strengths and our ethical beliefs – to them we owe a great deal,” she began. She then thanked her family and the creator of the film for which she won. “This is really great and I thank you. I come out of the woods every few years and you invite me to the party. But there’s a lot of young ones and they’re coming up, and they need doorstops too,” she joked of her SAG statue.
But it was after the awards show that McDormand really had some fun. “We don’t have a lot of patience, we want to drink,” she said backstage in the press room with the other winners. She encouraged reporters to take their photos quickly so that she and her castmates could head on to the afterparty. While in the press room, she decided to make some silly faces with her co-stars Abbie Cornish and Amanda Warren to pass the time.
