20 of 20Most Awkward Appearance
Um ... what? When Jacqueline Bisset wins Best Supporting Actress honors for the TV movie Dancing on the Edge, we're hoping she just didn't expect to win and thus didn't have a speech prepared, because this is really something else. After an endless walk to the stage, Bisset, 69, takes an uncomfortably long time to collect her thoughts, noting that the HFPA has nominated her "about five times" and calling out to Chiwetel Ejiofor in the audience for inspiration. "I'm sorry, I'm going to get this together," she eventually promises — but doesn't deliver. During the rambling speech that ensues, the orchestra tries to play Bisset off, but she ignores them. The censors also backfire, cutting out a large chunk of Bisset's speech and re-starting the audio just in time to catch her saying "sh--." At least all the other winners know what not to do from here on out!
