SOMEBODY BLEEPED UP

January 13, 2014

Whoever was responsible for bleeping the stars’ Golden Globes speeches miscalculated big time with Jacqueline Bisset.

Accepting her trophy as best supporting actress for the Starz miniseries “Dancing on the Edge,” a clearly surprised Bisset voiced a lengthy, rambling acceptance speech. Her words prompted the orchestra to begin playing the get-off-the-stage music.

That in turn prompted Bisset to fire off a profanity that began with the words, “And the people who have given me ... ”

Oddly, TV viewers didn’t hear the first part of her statement. It was bleeped.

What did get through TV sets loud and clear was the forbidden final word.
