Melissa Leo Blames Kate Winslet for Oscars F-BombMelissa Leo, the actress who dropped a F-bomb during her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress at the Academy Awards, explained the cause of her live gaffe on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

At the start of the interview, Ellen DeGeneres surprises Leo with a swear jar and a tiny pair of earphones to shield her Oscar from any possible profanity. Then, Leo explains that curse words are simply part of her regular vocabulary. "It's part of my vernacular, part of my upbringing," she said.

Leo goes on to say that none other than Kate Winslet, who she worked with on the upcoming miniseries 'Mildred Pierce,' was to blame for her faux pas. "[She] curses like a sailor all the time. So, she was in my mind. Yeah, it's Kate's fault," said Leo.

bcagawam, you have some nerve suggesting that Melissa Leo "ruined" the Academy Awards! Admit it, you were rooting for somebody else to win and you are a poor sport! If you are so pure and holy, why do you say nothing about the TV networks, ABC included, which accept millions of dollars in advertising revenues from drug companies selling erectile dysfunction drugs? They then put the ads on the air during prime time. Can you just hear the children now? "Mommy and daddy, ABC did a wonderful thing in "bleeping" that naughty word Melissa Leo said so that I would not have to hear it. And bcagawam did a wonderful thing in denouncing Melissa Leo for her contributing to the decline and fall of America. But, what is a four (4) hour erection?"

If Kate Winslet caused Melissa Leo to drop the "F" bomb, somebody should take Kate across their knee and give her a good spanking. Any volunteers?

Great - now it's Kate's fault. Or is it just part of her "vernacular"? I don't care how you were raised, you are a professional NOW. If you can't clean up your own act, at least have enough character not to blame others.

Oh, for heaven's sake, can we please tone down the reaction? The whole awards show ruined because of one gaffe? If a person is that hung up on language, they are probably better off not watching a live presentation during which a lot of unrepressed artists are going to be speaking. This is the same group of people who made it fashionable to have a baby and THEN get married, or to have a baby and NOT get married at all. Save your outrage for issues that truly deserve it, not a bleeped F-bomb.

The Academy Awards were ruined because of Leo's big filthy mouth. If she was brought up with garbage coming out of her mouth,. let her stay home.
