Joaquin Phoenix Drops Multiple F-Bombs in Golden Globes Speech, Blasts Hollywood Hypocrisy


Joaquin Phoenix took home the Golden Globe on Sunday night for his role in “Joker,” but not without some drama.

After acknowledging his fellow nominees, Phoenix, a long-time skeptic of Hollywood awards shows, said “There is no f—ing best actor.”

NBC proceeded to cut out the audio as he dropped multiple f-bombs, all of which were muted for TV viewers.

“I’m such a pain in the ass,” he continued in a rambling speech, acknowledging “Joker” director Todd Phillips. “I cannot believe you put up with me.”

He also lauded the Globes for switching to a vegan meal for the ceremony, thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press for “recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and climate change. It’s a very bold move, making tonight plant-based,” the vegan actor said.

Several of the night’s Golden Globe winners, including Patricia Arquette, Ellen DeGeneres and Michelle Williams had made political and social statements throughout the show, from well-wishes for those affected by the devastating wildfires in Australia to pleas for more voters in the 2020 election.
