Frances McDormand’s Oscar speech in full
The actress took home the coveted gong for her role in the Martin McDonagh directed film.
Frances McDormand beat the likes of Meryl Streep and Sally Hawkins to be named the best actress at the 90th Oscars for her role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
McDormand, 60, also championed her female co-stars and all of the females in the room at the ceremony by asking them all to stand.
Here is a full transcript of her Oscars acceptance speech from the Academy:
“Okay, so I’m hyperventilating a little bit. If I fall over, pick me up cause I’ve got some things to say.
“So I think this is what Chloe Kim must have felt like after doing back-to-back 1080s in the Olympic halfpipe. Did you see that? Okay, that’s what it feels like.
Hey Frances let's go snowboarding sometime 🙈— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) March 5, 2018
“I want to thank Martin McDonagh, look what you did. We are a bunch of hooligans and anarchists but we do clean up nice. I want to thank every single person in this building.
“And my sister Dorothy. I love you, Dot. And I especially want to thank my clan, Joel and Pedro “McCoen.” These two stalwart individuals were well-raised by their feminist mothers. They value themselves, each other and those around them. I know you are proud of me and that fills me with everlasting joy.
“And now I want to get some perspective. If I may be so honoured to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight, the actors – Meryl, if you do it, everybody else will, c’mon – the filmmakers, the producers, the directors, the writers, the cinematographer, the composers, the songwriters, the designers. C’mon!
“Okay, look around everybody. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed.
“Don’t talk to us about it at the parties tonight.
“Invite us into your office in a couple days, or you can come to ours, whatever suits you best, and we’ll tell you all about them.
“I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider”.
