Jacqueline Bisset may have taken home a Golden Globe today, but she also may have won the honour of the strangest acceptance speech. 

The legendary actress, who has been making films since 1965, looked absolutely stunned when she was named the winner of the award for best supporting actress in a series, miniseries, or television film for Dancing on the Edge.

Indeed, it took her a long time to make her way to the stage, during which she took breaks to greet friends like Jon Voight. (Jacqueline is the godmother to Jon's daughter, Angelina Jolie.) 

Once she got on stage, Jacqueline took nearly a minute to collect herself, before trailing off on a list of people to thank.

However, she finished things off with a bang at the end of her speech, saying, "I want to thank the people who have given me joy, and there have been many. And to [uninteligable] sh*t, I say like my mother. What did she used to say? Go to hell, and don't come back. But my mother wasn't all mean. If you want to look good, you've got to forgive everybody.
