Oscar winner drops f-bomb during acceptance speech

Actress Melissa Leo has picked up the dubious honour of being the first Academy Award winner to swear during her acceptance speech.

Leo, who picked up Best Supporting Actress for her work in The Fighter, let it slip after she accepted the award from actor Kirk Douglas during the ceremony, which was broadcast live on TV.

“When I watched Kate [Winslet] do this two years ago she made it look so f**king easy!” Leo said before immediately realising her mistake.

The actress apologised backstage saying: “Those words, I apologise to anyone that they offend. There is a great deal of the English language that is in my vernacular.”
