Tom Hiddleston Responds to Criticism of Golden Globes Speech

Tom Hiddleston is speaking out after he received criticism for his acceptance speech at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards.

The 35-year-old actor was called “self-indulgent” by people on Twitter after it seemed like he was giving himself a pat on the back for his show The Night Manager bringing the people of South Sudan entertainment during a time of crisis.

When TMZ asked Tom about the criticism, he said he had not heard what people said yet, but that “we all have to do the best we can to help each other out.”

    I love the guy but it was long winded and incredibly self-indulgent. I’m sure that wasn’t his intended affect and I’m sure it’s tricky to stand in front of a crowd on live tv anfd try to speak naturally but it was painful to watch.

    One good thing came out of it thought: Chrisitan Slater’s facial expressions. #priceless

    Not sure it was intended to sound like that tbh, he was trying to highlight a serious situation and I think, in the moment, knowing he had a limited amount of time, it all just came out wrong he’s been working with Unicef for a long time now and I think their work and others was what he was trying to get at. But it’s been his turn for backlash for a while, the whole Hiddleswift thing, and now this. He won’t be able to do right for wrong in the public eye for a while, but the tide will turn and people will move on to bitching about someone else eventually

    smug, overrated and self indulgent. he shouldn’t have even won.

  • Wendy Belhem Martinez Romero

    So proud of his speech, and his answer in this video.I know he normally loves to congratulates and celebrate his friends and cowrkers talents but he used that precious time to talk about South Sudán and UNICEF.
    His acting is so good in The Night Manager that is seems effortless, really glad The Golden Globes has a good eye.

  • Shayna Grissom

    If you see the clip when his win was announced, it looked like he was totally surprised. I don’t think he expected to win. So his speech may have been improvised, or he was overwhelmed, but he had good intentions. More than I can say for most.

  • Will

    He did great, he thought of a serious cause during his speech and brought it up to help highlight it,

  • Kris

    He did something different. He did something good. People are afraid of what is not usual. So sad to get to him like that. Well deserved the award btw. He is an amazing actor!!

    Jesus christ some people go to far.

    What I heard was someone finding out that people across the world, during turbulent times, finding a couple hours of peace by watching something made by “Hollywood”. Yes, he said his show/himself, but I think that was only because it was the first thing to enter his head while standing there, most likely still in shock from winning. And he was going off Hugh Laurie’s joke how Trump hates Hollywood, the press and foreigners and how this GG show might be the last because Trump might destroy all three.

    So IMO I felt that Tom was trying to press how important Hollywood is, despite Trumpers and their hatred of “liberal Hollywood” because it brings entertainment, including doctors who needed some time after working through hell. And that’s why Hollywood is important.

    Buuuuuuuut that’s just my opinion.
