If you blinked, you missed it! Frances McDormand gave one of the shortest acceptance speeches EVER during the 2015 Emmy Awards. She also attended the show while wearing barely any make-up, causing fans to wonder on Twitter if Frances just ‘got out bed’ and forgot she was going to the Emmys?
Wow! Frances McDormand, 58, may have another awards show to attend. When she gave her acceptance speech during the 2015 Emmys, the Fargo actress barely spent any time giving out thanks. She also wore no make-up and a messy hairdo, causing some fans to freak out on social media!
Frances took home Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her work on Olive Kitteridge at the 2015 Emmys on Sept. 20, reports Entertainment Weekly. It was her first Emmy win, and while some would be overjoyed with the victory, Frances seemed like she didn’t care.
“Hi. My colleagues, Jane and Lisa, have given all the thank-yous that need to be said,” Frances said after she was given her award. “We’re all here because of the power of a story well told. Sometimes, that’s enough. Thank you.” It took Frances longer to kiss her husband, Joel Cohen, and walk up to accept her award than to give her acceptance speech. Fans clearly noticed and took to Twitter to call her out for it. Some pointed out how Uzo Aduba reacted when she won her Emmy, saying “that’s how you say thank you.”
Other users pointed out that in a theater full of stars wearing some of the most glamorous dresses, Frances looked like she “rolled out of bed.” Some said she was like “I’m here. I put these earrings on,” and that was enough! Others even compared her to fellow Emmy winner, Peter Dinklage, saying they have the “same tiny pony-tail hairdo.” Yikes! Some pointed out that Jamie Lee Curtis could rock the “no makeup look,” while Frances did not.
Not all the reactions were bad. Some said that Frances was the “high queen” of acceptance speeches. Some even really enjoyed it! So, in addition to her Emmy, she won some fans with what some are calling the Shortest Emmy Speech in history!
What did you think of Frances’s look and speech, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she was under-dressed or was that just her kind of look?
