Dear Academy voters:
I know her category is filled with amazing actresses who delivered performances equally worthy of the award…
But I think Emma’s acceptance speech would be one for the books.
Just take a gander at the statement she released upon hearing she was nominated:
“Well, this is surreal. I am completely knocked out. Thank you to the Academy for this incredible honor. I am very proud and lucky to be a part of Birdman and can’t believe it came to this. I am so f–king excited. Are you allowed to say f–k when you’re making a statement for the Oscars? I’m just really f–king excited.” (via E!).
BOOM (figuratively dropping the microphone)
