A Critics’ Choice Awards 2014 mistake led to the first F-bomb dropped of the night. While Sandra Bullock was accepting her award for Best Actress in an Action Movie, a voice came across the loudspeaker and seemed to start to say “Critics’ Choice.”
Bullock’s response was priceless (and bleeped out):
“I’m an action hero,” she quips. “You do not do that to an action hero.”
Taking the entire incident in stride, Bullock thanked those involved in making the “action movie” “Gravity.” Her most priceless shout out was to co-star George Clooney, to whom she says, “I’d like to thank George Clooney for floating away and not coming back.”
“Gravity” also earned nine Academy Award nominations, including a Best Actress nod for Bullock.
