Melissa Leo dropped the F-Bomb in her Oscar acceptance speech. This after causing some controversy in some pre-Oscar ads for support for her nomination as Best Supporting Actress. Read about it below.
Melissa Leo may be remembered as the cursing best supporting actress. The 50-year-old actress won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘The Fighter’. Apparently, she was so overcome with joy that she dropped the F-bomb in her Oscar acceptance speech.
Is that a first? I don’t know but rumor has it that it is. Melissa Leo admitted later that The Academy Awards during a live broadcast in the Kodak Theater was probably not the right place for that kind of language.
“Those words, I apologize to anyone they offend,” said Leo, as tweeted by our own Jen Chaney. “There is a great deal of the English language in my vernacular.”
Whether or not anyone was offended is yet to be seen. One thing is for sure though. She’ll be remembered for dropping the f-bomb in her Oscar acceptance speech. For years to come reports will say ‘the first time that happened was in 2011 when Melissa Leo ….’.
Congratulations to Melissa Leo and all the other winners of the Academy Awards tonight.
