What was the Entirety of Joe Pesci’s Speech at the 63rd Awards?
For a guy like Joe Pesci to not blab on and on is a minor miracle. But this is exactly what we got at the 63rd Academy Awards. Pesci won for Best Supporting Actor in Goodfellas, stepped up, and simply said, “It was my privilege. Thank you.”
Whether this was due to humility, drunkenness, a forgotten speech, the whole endless swearing thing, or some weird combination of the four, nobody but Pesci knows. Us Non-Joes must settle for being highly amused over how quickly the orchestra had to key back up, long before they actually expected to do so.
