Kaley Cuoco Slams Rumor She Snubbed Carol Burnett at Golden Globes 2019

Kaley Cuoco took to her Instagram Story on Monday (January 7) to slam a rumor that she didn’t participate in a standing ovation for Carol Burnett at the 2019 Golden Globes.

Carol received the first ever Carol Burnett Award at the show and gave a moving speech.

“There’s one thing I want to address, which again I don’t normally do. I was reading some comments about the evening, and I saw a bunch of people posting that I didn’t stand up during Carol Burnett‘s speech. Are you crazy? Not only was I standing, I was bawling,” Kaley said. “You can better believe that I was standing and completely touched by her speech—a speech that I will never forget and that I will be able to tell my own children that I was in the room that day. And the words she spoke touched me to my core. So, I don’t know what show you were watching to go and tell me that I didn’t stand for Carol Burnett and how disappointed you were in me.”

“She’s one of my favorite people and has truly, like I said, paved the way for my career and a bunch of silly women like me who get to mess around and make jokes on camera and make fun of themselves because of what Carol Burnett did,” she continued. “So don’t come at me. I know what I was doing, and I was standing. With that being said it was a magical evening. I am so grateful for my husband and my glam squad and that our jobs give us nights like this. I’m ready to go to bed now and go to work tomorrow at The Big Bang.”

Carol Burnett is the honoree of the first ever Carol Burnett Award!

The 85-year-old TV icon took the stage at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards to receive the awards show’s new top honor in television achievement.

During her speech, Carol reflected on her The Carol Burnett Show – which ran for 11 seasons on CBS from 1967 to 1978 and won 25 Emmys.

“We have been granted a gift, a canvas to paint with our talent, one that can make people laugh or cry, or maybe do both,” Carol shared about working in TV.

Carol continued: “I’m just happy that our show happened when it did and I can look back and say once more, ‘I’m so glad we had this time together.’”

Congrats Carol!

Carol Burnett Receiving Self-Titled Award at Golden Globes 2019!

Carol Burnett steps out on the red carpet at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 6) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The legendary actress will be receiving the self-titled Carol Burnett Award during the event this evening. She met up with actress Amy Adams on the red carpet.

“When I was a kid growing up out here in Hollywood with my grandmother, we would go to the premieres and hang over the ropes,” Carol said on the red carpet (via People). “I had my little autograph book with me and whenever one of them stopped, it meant so much to me at that time. So I know that when somebody feels that way towards all of us, you have to pay back.”

“I don’t answer every letter, but I answer mostly [the ones] from kids,” she added. “I’m getting fan mail from 10-year-olds! If they leave me a phone number, I’ll call ’em.”

FYI: Carol is wearing Bob Mackie.
