Of course, this isn’t the first time Coolidge made a splash at an award show. The Legally Blonde alum essentially gave a masterclass in comedy with her acceptance speech at the 2022 Emmys.
Specifically, she started off her address by informing the crowd at the Microsoft Theater that she already had a memorable day before nabbing the Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie trophy.
“I just want to say. I took a lavender bath tonight right before the show and it made me swell up inside my dress,” Coolidge explained. “I’m having a hard time speaking.”
She went on to call the win “thrilling” and proceeded to thank a number of people off of a crinkled piece of paper. When producers tried to play her off with music, she declared, “Oh s–t!”
“Wait hold on,” she pleaded. “No this is a once in a lifetime thing and I’m full. I’m full!”
Coolidge ended her moment in the spotlight by improvising some dance moves, which resulted in laughter and applause from the audience. Talk about a legend move!
