Allison Janney Gives Raunchy Acceptance Speech at 2014 Critics' Choice Awards
Kids, cover your ears! Allison Janney looked gorgeous in gold at the 2014 Critics' Choice Television Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Thursday, June 19, but it wasn't her shimmering Stella McCartney dress that stole the show. After winning the award for Best Guest Performer in a Drama Series for her work in Masters of Sex, the actress gave a crazy, raunchy acceptance speech (in keeping with the sex-themed Showtime series) that drew in a significant amount of cackling from the star-studded audience.
"I just came," the 54-year-old said with a blush. "I also have to thank so many people. Michelle Ashford and Sarah Timberman called me up a year-and-a-half ago and told me about this beautiful character that they were writing about and asked me to come aboard and I'm so grateful that I did. And to Michael [Sheen] and Lizzy [Caplan] who are the most gracious talented hosts of any TV show that I've ever been a part of. They were just wonderful."
"And also the men in my life—the best lovers I've ever had onscreen -- Beau Bridges and Teddy Sears…I adore you and it's an amazing show."
Moments later, Janney snagged her second win of the night when she tied with Orange Is the New Black's Kate Mulgrew for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Moms.
"This is the climax of my career," she said, continuing the previous joke. "This is extraordinary."
