Melissa Leo was so excited to win the award for Actress in a Supporting Role for her part in the film The Fighter that she accidentally dropped the F bomb, loud and clear on live TV.
While the mishap made for great TV (the network couldn’t sensor the slip-up fast enough), Melissa did express her apologies to reporters after she was finished with her acceptance speech. As you can see in the video below, Leo was actually speechless after she was announced as the winner.
She stumbled over her words for a few minutes at the beginning of her speech but belted out the F word with no troubles.
Nice to see an award-winning actress with a little bit of a trucker mouth.
Now we know why she played the role of Alice Role so convincingly.
Here’s the video of the hilarious mishap at the 2011 Oscars:
