HBO’s “Phil Spector” lands Mirren another award for her already huge collection
Helen Mirren already has a very impressive collection of awards, but she still gets very emotional when she wins another one, like it happened over the weekend at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2014.The actress was up for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for her role in HBO’s “Phil Spector,” starring the legendary Al Pacino as the controversial music mogul now serving time for murder.
She was so emotional that she kicked off her acceptance speech, as you can see in the video above, with a couple of naughty jokes, about how much she loved “this little guy” and how she didn’t feel “saggy” at all but quite “perky” to have won.
Oh that Helen!
On a more serious note, she thanked the organizers and her co-star in the film, Pacino, for the chance of getting to work with him and thus see his method up close and personal. Of course, she also thanked HBO for the chance they gave her by casting her.
