Olivia Colman’s Oscars acceptance speech brought a smile to many a viewer’s face following her surprise win on Sunday.
The 45-year-old, who picked up the ‘best actress’ Academy Award for her role in The Favourite, collected her accolade and gave a hilarious speech – even blowing raspberries at the timekeepers after being asked to cut it short.
It wasn’t just viewers who loved it – stars including Richard E Grant were full of praise for the former Peep Show star, saying she is “in a league of her own”.
But you can’t please everyone, of course – that person being Jane Moore.
The Loose Women panelist accused Olivia of being faking her humble attitude, and said that her win didn’t make sense.
She said: “I just don’t get it. Is it really a surprise?
“Why do you always have to do the ‘oh I was just sweeping the streets and someone just gave me an Oscar!’ act?’”
“Maybe it’s a female thing. Maybe women do it a bit too much to ourselves. Like a ‘little old me’ kind of thing.”
Jane continued: “I’m not saying I don’t like Olivia. I just didn’t like the speech. She was privately educated, she trained to be an actor.
“She’s brilliant, but just appreciate it and go ‘thank you, I worked very hard’.”
It was clear that she was on her own with her thoughts – Stacey Solomon, who revealed last week she is pregnant , praised Olivia’s reaction, saying, “we teach our children to not be big-headed, and not show off.”
Viewers also echoed Stacey’s views, with many taking to Twitter to blast Jane over her opinion, which followed her coming out in support of Michael Jackson despite latest abuse rumours.
One tweeted: “Jane Moore slating Olivia Coleman But in full support of Michael Jackson either way what a messed up person.”
Another said: “Totally agree with Stacey! Jane just doesn’t get it at all! Parents can give their child self esteem in abundance! But outside influences including unrealistic lifestyles on social media can knock them down and make anyone feel rubbish.”
A third said: “Go away Jane, it’s such a huge moment for any actor to win an Oscar, so why even try and take that moment away from anyone? Go away and be happy for her!”
