Live Awards Broadcast Hit With F-Bombs -- but Did the Censors Catch Them in Time? Deadline
Two huge Hollywood stars dropped “f-bombs” within the first half-hour of a live awards broadcast Thursday night. Deadline.com reports that “Gravity” star Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper of “American Hustle” let fly with the famous four-letter word during the CW’s Critic’s Choice Movie Awards.
Bullock was accepting her trophy for Best Actress in an Action Movie when the PA system unexpectedly boomed with a voice, the piece notes. While the censors bleeped her reaction, “even the most amateur lip reader could figure that she said ‘What the f**k?’ She smiled and continued with her speech," the piece notes.
A few minutes later, Cooper, accepting the Best Acting Ensemble award for “American Hustle,” called his colleagues “these f**cking actors.”
“The CW actually went 3-for-3 on the bleep button, including a fleeting ‘sh*t’ from Cate Blanchett as she accepted the Best Actress award for ‘Blue Jasmine,’” the piece adds. "That’s better than NBC managed when the network let Jacqueline Bisset’s loud-’n'-clear 'sh*t!' get on the air during the Golden Globes telecast last weekend."
