It was her Oscar
If this is the way she gives acceptance speeches for acting, maybe she should win one. Diablo Cody tweeted from the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards last night that:
Mariah Carey just gave the most awesome acceptance speech of all time.
Unfortunately, at press time, there’s only this short video of what happened. Will try to find the rest because, well, the Mimi was derrrrunk. And she was in epic form. And she probably sucked up everyone’s time. And it was probably gold.
Please! We need more!
Mimi was presented with the Breakthrough Acting Award last night for her performance in Precious. You can imagine how important this is for her. It’s also very important for her that you know that the way she looked in Precious is definitely not the way she looks when she’s not Mimi-fied. F-ck the acting, Mimi is OBSESSED with her appearance:
"Did you not see the redness under my eyes, nose--and the mustache? That's the only thing I care about. I lost all the vanity stuff, but when people really started analyzing, they have to ask about the mustache. Why is it important? Oh, my goodness, it's hideous. That's not my no-makeup look--just FYI. Could you let your readers know?...I don't think would be here if that was my look."
This is how Mariah Carey campaigns for an Oscar. By repeatedly letting voters know she’s not really that ugly. It’s blasphemy to say, I know, but imagine her at the Kodak on March 7th? Can you f-cking imagine? I want to see. I really really want to see.
