What She Said
While her acknowledgement speech was loving as she thanked her parents and greatest fans. She made the viewers and attendees laugh with one of her accounts.
As she went on the stage, she began her speech, “Wow, I should have peed. Thank you to the cast of Maisel and the crew of Maisel, to Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. This is a huge honour but not a huge surprise because I was raised by two of the harshest critics in the world, One of them is here with me tonight, my father.”
“My parents were able to in a single breath tell me that they love me, that I was the greatest thing since sliced bread but also that I ate too much bread, that I should stop eating so much bread, that I was starting to look like bread”, she continued.
She just didn’t stop there. It seems like she exercised it a lot. “This is dedicated to you mo, you are the greatest critics in the world. You fostered my quirks and you fueled my flames, you made me funny. You made me have children, which cracked me open and helped me find my heart, which was you guys. Thank you all.”
