Award acceptance speeches can be soooo awkward. They usually drag on & on before they finally realize they're babbling about nothing, thanking old elementary school teachers while everyone in the audience pretends to know who these people are; or the exact opposite: THEY BRING A LIST. What an arrogant thing to do! It normally goes something like this: "I'm so surprised by this award, I really never thought in a million years I'd win it (ut I brought a big list of people to thank because I secretly KNEW I'd win)!" Didn't anyone take a speech-class in high school or college? OUTLINE AND MEMORIZE. And what happens when the producers cut your speech too early? Do you awkwardly finish talking into a dead microphone, or do you just drop your pants & moon everyone (maybe that's just me)?
Well - just look to Adele for exactly what to do. She's a big fan of the finger. She's so classy! [Buzzfeed]
(if you don't want to watch the "Fank You's" from Adele, the bird-flipping happens at the :50 mark)
