Frances McDormand, who is notoriously unimpressed by awards shows, got a chance to bring her infamous nonchalance to the Emmys stage on Sunday when she won Best Actress in a Limited Series for Olive Kitteridge.

"Hi. My colleagues Jane [Anderson] and Lisa [Cholodenko] have already given the thank yous that needed to be said. We're all here because the power of a story well told. Sometimes, that's enough," McDormand said, before abruptly walking off the stage.

While some appreciated McDormand's curt speech, not everyone was digging it.

When McDormand once again got the mic to accept the award for Best Limited Series, she managed to project some actual excitement while thanking various HBO execs.
