Melissa Leo

The Acceptance Speech

Get over it people. Swearing is not the end of the world. People swear in every day life but if you're famous you have to censor yourself and act different in the light than you would in real life? I agree that it wasn't the right time, but it was obviously an accident. Give her a damn break.

What a phony speech altogether. These people are rarely at a loss for words. Her F-Bomb was unnecessary and even "if" it was accidental, she must use it regularly to just let it "slip". Here is my problem though, did she think it was funny to grab Michael Douglas' cane and hobble off stage? Good grief woman, did you not see he needed it?

It was better than the stupid and sophomoric writing on this telecast. Too bad Billy Crystal won't come back to host.

I thought it was greatness. What snobbery to suggest otherwise. It was bleeped, but even if it wasn't, who says that word should be bad but the word "s e x" or intercourse is not? Get over your holier-than-thou selves.

OMG! #67! Melissa, I didn't know you were on TMZ, too! Thanks for adding your intellectual weight here, also. We're all enlightened yet again.

It was TOTALLY planned. She wanted her name out there and wanted one of those 'most memorable speech' moments. She's a totally classless fame whore.

It comes back to... does she kiss her mother with that mouth? I am over the disrespect of the english language. There are too many other words that can express the same feeling. It just goes to show that if they don't have a script they don't know what to say.

This is America. We start needless wars, and leave 50 million people without health insurance...but are shocked by naughty words on TV.

New rule: Leo doesn't speak unless it's from a script. She's a tiresome old attention whore with nothing to talk about but herself.
