Jacqueline Bisset Delivers Strangest Speech Of Night At 2014 Golden Globe Awards, Get Bleeped
British Actress Jacqueline Bisset delivered one of the strangest speeches when she accepted the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie for her performance in Dancing on the Edge.
Bisset, 69, earned her trophy early on in the night at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, and, due to her seating at the back of the hall, took a bit of time getting to the stage, creating an already awkward atmosphere for her acceptance speech. A shocked and emotional Bisset took the microphone and, what began as a sweet speech turned into Bisset giving the audience a lesson in forgiveness as the band tried to play her off the stage.
Bisset Gets Bleeped
Bisset did entertain, earning one of the first bleeps of the night with her brief swearing, saying, “For those who have given me s—t, like my mother always said, ‘Go to hell and don’t come back!”
The longtime actress thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and her Dancing on the Edge co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor before swearing as the music started and giving the audience a bit of advice.
“Forgive everybody. It’s the best beauty treatement. Forgiveness of yourself and for others. I love my friends I love my family and you’re so kind,” Bisset said.
Backstage, Bisset said that she was completely taken aback by how early her category was announced and had been so shocked during her speech, she couldn’t remember what she said. When a reporter commented on her lengthy procession to the stage, Bisset apologized, saying, “Did it take forever? I saw Jon Voight on the way there and got a kiss from him, which was lovely. Sorry it took so long!”
