Melissa Leo, who won for her role in "The Fighter," was so overcome by her win that she dropped the F bomb during her acceptance speech. Which may just be a first for the Academy Awards. And in the press room after stepping off stage, Leo admitted the Kodak Theater and a live broadcast was probably not the appropriate venue for the f-bomb.
"Those words, I apologize to anyone they offend," said Leo, as tweeted by our own Jen Chaney. "There is a great deal of the English language in my vernacular."
Kathy Griffin's 2007 Emmy acceptance speech was cut from the broadcast when the comedienne said, "A lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus."
