The 2015 Golden Globes was a typically wild affair–made wilder when Kevin Spacey dropped an f-bomb during his acceptance speech. It seems that the guy couldn’t believe he “f**cking won” as he joined the list of winners for the big night. [photo: Kevin Winter/Getty]
We should note that Netflix sure felt differently. The home of House of Cards released the trailer for the show’s third season during the awards ceremony. Maybe they should’ve told Kevin they were going to do that.
Also, Kevin had a pretty classy story about meeting with director Stanley Kramer in the old folks home while the filmmaker was in his final years–after Spacey had thanked the legendary figure for his decades of work.
And I didn’t know whether he had really retained what I said or no. Sometimes he did and sometimes he didn’t. But as I stood up to leave he grabbed my hand and I looked at his wife across the room and I sat back down and he said to me as clear as anything he’d ever said, ‘Thank you so much for saying that. That means so much to me. I just wish my films could have been better.’
And so as I stand here tonight as someone who’s enjoyed such an extraordinary career–in large measure because of people in this room–I just wanted to be better. I just want to be better. But this is very encouraging. Thank you very much.
It sounds better when Spacey tells the story. Check it out–with the f-bomb intact, so it’s technically NSFW…
