The best way to steal the show at the Golden Globes? Double "S" it up: silence and swearing!

After her long walk up to the stage, Jacqueline Bisset did just that when she accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Miniseries, or TV Movie for her work in Dancing on the Edge at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.

At first, Bisset stood at the podium speechless, overcome by emotion and on the verge of tears. Then, when she was able to speak, she was able to do the impossible: Outdo Jennifer Lawrence, who had just won Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for American Hustle, when it came to giving a memorable acceptance speech!

When Bisset tried to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association by recalling that they gave her an award "47 years ago" for Promising Newcomer, she stumbled over her words.

After pausing for a moment, Bisset, 69, attempted to start again, saying, "Scottish background to the front!"

But after promising "I'm going to get this together," producers played the music, signaling for Bisset to wrap it up, a signal she chose to ignore, opting instead to say "s--t!" before rambling on.

"Like my mother, she used to say, 'Go to hell and don't come back!'" Bisset said, which drew laughter from the crowd. "However, my mother was not entirely me. I believe if you want to look good, you've got to forgive everybody. It's the best beauty treatment. Forgiveness for yourself and for the others."

Bisset then wrapped up her speech by saying, "I love my friends, I love my family, and you're so kind. Thank you so much."

 No, thank you, Ms. Bisset. Thank you.
