Frances McDormand’s Globes acceptance speech for her best actress Award gets censored. Here are the details.
In a night where most of the actors try and keep their Globes Acceptance speech short and impressive, Frances McDormand (60) went out of the way and ended up getting the biggest censorship of the night on 7th Jan, 2018 – The Golden Globes Awards. She is generally very private and polite and keeps it very low in her Hollywood scenes, but when Frances McDormand won the best actress award in a Motion Picture Drama for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri she used this opportunity to unload and speak her mind. However, censors cropped off her truth filled speech to the extent that the victims were the fans back home and watching it on their televisions.
“Well, I have a few things to say. I’m going to keep it short because we’ve been here a long time and we need some tequila. All you ladies in this category, bar. Tequila’s on me,
She opened her acceptance speech.
“Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. I’m still not quite sure who they are when I run into them over the last 35 years, but I love seeing their faces. And let’s face it, they managed to elect a female president,”
She said getting a huge round of applause from the lovely audience. She then went on to target her costars saying:
“And if I mention my two favorite cowboys, Sam (Rockwell) and Woody (Harrelson) ‑‑ because they are ‑‑ then I will have to list the entire cast and crew of our film because everybody brought their best game to this one, their very best game. For instance, I cannot throw a baseball for shite.”
She descirbed how she got molotov cocktails from:
“one building to another across a two‑lane street. That was really fun, but don’t try it at home.”
Fans noted that the censors cropped “molotov cocktails” as if she was swearing! “So many of you know I keep my politics private, but it was really great to be in this room tonight and to be a part of a,” she ended her speech with a beep for saying “a tectonic shift.” then the censors left her to finish “in our industry’s power structure. Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food,” she said . “We are here for the work. Thank you,” she said before heading offstage. What was the requirement for this unnecessary censorship of such a great speech!!!
