That was… interesting. Judd Apatow went on a furious rant against the Golden Globes while presenting the MVP Award to Amy Schumer at the Jan. 17 Critics’ Choice Awards. He told all the drama films out there to ‘go f–k yourself.’ Click to WATCH!
Judd Apatow, 48, is seriously angry that Trainwreck got snubbed at the Golden Globes this year. The director railed against the awards show and told the dramatic movies — especially the ones that were put in the comedy category at the Globes — to “go f–k yourself” during his speech at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards. Judd didn’t hold back whatsoever! Watch his rant now!
Judd started making his speech to honor Amy Schumer with the MVP Award when he spotted Matt Damon in the audience. “I got Matt Damon staring at me right now, right after that whole ‘Golden Globe Comedy’ thing. We only have one award, Matt. That’s all we get. I’m like a nerd on the schoolyard, and you stole my milk money.”
Judd is referring to the fact that some so-called “dramas,” like The Martian and Joy, were nominated for Best Comedy alongside Trainwreck at the Golden Globes. Since he had a microphone, Judd made sure his frustration about losing Best Comedy to The Martian was heard in one crazy rant!
“I mean can we just pick whatever category we want to be in? We have an Asian man in our movie, can I go far in film now? I don’t mean to be weird about it, but to all the dramas out there: Go f–k yourself… And your period costumes and your concussions and your bears and your sexuality. Go f–k yourself.”
Whoa. We did NOT see that coming! Judd clearly has no problem voicing his opinion. After his rant was over, he presented the MVP Award to the “funniest person in the world” — Amy!
“They made up an award to get her here. That’s how valid these awards are. Someone already told us we lost Best Comedy to Carol,” Judd said, getting one last dig in. Watch Trainwreck and more of your favorite movies by signing up for Amazon now!
