Aw, come on people. No one should faint because in an emotional moment - and the acceptance speech was exactly that, she used the "f" word under those cir***stances. You all can grow up by reading Chaucher, English philopher, poet and more in (1300s). Let's just grow up, golly gee. She was honest with her feelings of achievement, gratitude and honor.

If there was a time and a place to start the music to get some lame idiot off the stage, Melissa Leo was that lame idiot. It was, arguably, the most narcissistic, self-indulgent, and BORING speech given by any oscar winner...nay...any prize winner, including the prizes given in first grade to the first child who learns to spell. Please Ms Leo, take out more ads to praise yourself so you can appear to possess even less class.

I'm offended - I'm offended by idiots who get all bent out of shape over a curse word. Move on with your life.

I saw her speech and grew weary of her rambling. It was so bad I quit watching all of the Oscars. You would think those in the running of winning would prepare what they would say. They should take her Oscar back!

Both Melissa Leo and Christian Bale triumphed in very tough categories.
Now, if only Natalie Portman triumphs, as well.
