The 53-year-previous Saturday Night Live alum took to Instagram whereas watching the telecast on Sunday, April 25 to publish footage of herself complaining about the size of the present’s acceptance speeches. Her sentiment mirrored complaints from Twitter customers all through the night time about the lack of music to chop off the speeches.
Leslie filmed her video as Mank‘s Erik Messerschmidt was accepting the prize for Best Cinematography. The comic appeared significantly bothered by Erik’s comment that he wished he may cut up the trophy “into five pieces” to be able to share it together with his fellow nominees.
“But we really hope that you don’t cut it into five pieces because, Lord have mercy,” Leslie stated in her video. “Everybody done got up there and said about 17 minutes of a f–king speech. It’s already in the Alcoholics-Anonymous-and-we-gonna-roast-each-other f–king building. And you motherf–kers look scared as f–k.”
She continued, “Don’t get up there and do a three-hour speech. So no, you shouldn’t be able to cut it into five parts. Thank God and move on, son!”
