Jacqueline Bisset provided one of the most cringe-worthy moments of Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony when she appeared to freeze up while accepting the trophy for best supporting actress in a TV series, miniseries or TV movie (for "Dancing on the Edge") and then delivered a rambling, at times incomprehensible acceptance speech.
On top of all that, it seemed to take her forever to get to the stage.
Predictably, the Twitterverse erupted, with many users goofing on the actress’s difficult moment — especially on how she just kept rambling.
The website Entertainmentwise gathered a few of the Twitter comments, including these:
“Jacqueline Bisset is in front of me accepting her coffee at Starbucks. I’ve been standing here an hour and a half now."
“Jacqueline Bisset was also nominated for a Longest Walk to the Stage Ever Golden Globe.”
From actor Zach Braff: “Jacqueline Bisset is still giving her speech to the buffet.”
Other tweets focused on the content of her speech:
“The only person who understood Jacqueline Bisset’s #GoldenGlobe acceptance speech was Dennis Rodman."
Ellen DeGeneres offered this: “I helped write Jacqueline Bisset’s speech. Did you like it?”
The report notes: "Bisset was quizzed about her speech following the ceremony and this is what she had to say on the matter: ‘Sorry it took so long. I was in a daze. … I was certainly surprised (to win), and I was completely out of it (just beforehand), thinking, "Where is my dinner?" I still hadn’t gotten the dinner I was expecting.’"
In case you missed it, here’s Bisset’s acceptance speech:
