Legendary actress Jacqueline Bisset just picked up the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Performance in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film for her work in the BBC/Starz series Dancing on the Edge. It took Bisset almost a minute to get to the stage after her name was announced, and then, once there, she spent several more seconds attempting to form words. Lip-smacking, a censorship fail (she slipped a "shit" through), and a message to the haters ("Go to hell and don't come back") ensued. They attempted to play her off, and she just refused to listen to the music and went right on babbling. What a woman.
This speech was a much greater victory than that trophy she's going home with.
Update: Annnnd, here's a full transcript of Bisset's speech:
(Sigh) God. (Lip smack.) (Laugh.) Um, I think it was 47 years ago that the Hollywood Foreign Press gave me, promising, a nomination for the Holl-uh, Promising Newcomer!!! (Sigh) Thank you very much, Hollywood Foreign Press. I'm absolutely shaken. I can't believe this. God knows you've nominated me about five times I think, anyway. (Sigh) (Lip smack) (Lip smack) (Sigh) OK! Scottish background to the front! OK! Um, I always wanted to do something for the BBC. And we did this. And this was great. Chiwetel, where are you? Can I see Chiwetel? I need him for inspiration. Where is he? OK. We had a good cast, didn't we? It was great. Starz thank you for putting this on and, uh, (lip smack) thank you to my British agent, Steve Kenis, and my American agent, Harry Abrams. (Music begins) I…I'm sorry, I'm gonna get this together! I want to thank the people who've given me joy and there have been many! The people who've given me shit, I say, like my mother, what did she say? She used to say, "Go to hell and don't come back." However, however, however, my mother was not entirely me. I (laughs) believe if you wanna look good, you've got to forgive everybody. You have to forgive everybody. It's the best beauty treatment. Forgiveness for yourself and for the others. (Blows a kiss) I love my friends, I love my family, and you're so kind! Thank you so much! (Giggles) Thank you!
