Jacqueline Bisset explains her viral Golden Globes speech
This year’s Golden Globes will be remembered for many things, from Tina and Amy’s triumphant return as hosts to teleprompter fails and a couple of very long walks to the stage.
One such walk early in the night led to one of the most memorable moments of the show, when Jacqueline Bisset won the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for Starz’s Dancing on the Edge. Bisset was sitting toward the back of the ballroom inside the Beverly Hilton and took a while to get to the stage to accept the award, where the truly memorable and bizarre part began.
Bisset sat down with Queen Latifah on her daytime talk show to explain the moment, which Latifah called “one of the most authentic moments of the night.” Apparently, Bisset was told her award was being presented toward the end of the night, and after being on the red carpet for over two hours, she was tired, thirsty, and hungry. “I’m thinking about other things, vaguely listening to the show. I’m thinking, ‘Why the hell I didn’t get my dinner?'”
