Jennifer Lawrence Needs To Teach A Workshop: Her Entire Golden Globes Acceptance Speech Here

|

Jennifer Lawrence delivered one of our favorite acceptance speeches

They should have spiked more of the drinks at the Golden Globes tonight, because a vast majority of the speeches have been way too polite. We liked Adele’s genuine surprise, and Anne Hathaway’s classy shout-out to Sally Field, well enough. But only one acceptance speech so far has really been the kind of silly-but-sweet thanks that makes us tune in: Jennifer Lawrence’s. And to think, this is her third such speech this week — Jen also took home a People’s Choice Award and a Critics’ Choice Award, in addition to this Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy prize. In the press room, we asked our own Kate Spencer to ask in the press room how she prepared her thanks, and Lawrence was a little less eloquent and quotable. Anyway, we loved her speech so much, we’re just going to hand it over to her. Here’s a transcript:

“Oh, what does it say, ‘I beat Meryl‘? Jokes aside I am so honored to be a part of this. David, thank you for believing in me and giving me a chance. There’s a reason why so many actors have thanked you from this stage. You are simply the best. Bradley, you’re incredible, and you made me better every single day. Harvey, thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today. And the entire cast of this movie, you guys are the heartbeat of this film and it wouldn’t be the same without you guys. Because then there wouldn’t be a cast. And I want to thank my family. Mom, people said you were crazy to believe in me, and you did it anyway. Dad, you taught me to laugh and that has been my salvation through all of this. I want to thank my brothers, Ben and Blaine, I wouldn’t be who I am today without you being mean to me and then really supportive and loving constantly. CAA, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, IDPR, thank you.”
