Can you believe a year has passed since Michelle Williams’ passionate acceptance speech at the Golden Globes? The 40-year-old took to the stage in Hollywood after winning the Best Actress in a limited series or TV movie statuette she had so coveted.
Of course, winning such a prized lifeless idol comes at a sacrifice, which she revealed to cheers and applause from the crowd. Williams, mother of two who was pregnant with a keeper this time, said: “I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose. To choose when to have my children, and with whom.”
Sometimes you have to ask yourself, ‘If I want a golden icon I can have on the shelf at home, is the life of my child really that important?’ Well a year on and her achievement is only slightly forgotten.
Nevertheless, having the right to choose to kill her own baby has given Williams more fame and fortune, which given the choice was no doubt well worth it. After all, she’s already got two kids, that’s plenty. Heck, the four-time Oscar nominee would probably have an Academy Award already if she’d let one of those go too.
With her upcoming Peggy Lee biopic, here’s hoping Ms. Williams will be taking home an even shinier golden idol at The Oscars next year – all thanks to putting down that nuisance of an inconvenient offspring.
