Streep's Golden Globes Post 50 Moment: "Oh S**t My Glasses!"

It was a moment only Baby Boomers could truly appreciate: Meryl Streep standing before the glitterati at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards to accept best actress honors and then dropping the bomb: "Oh s**t my glasses!"

Streep, who won the drama award for her portrayal of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady," wasn't able to read the acceptance speech she had carried with her to the podium. "OK, I'm gonna have to remember my speech," she said.

Iron Lady producer Harvey Weinstein tried to recover Streep's glasses, handing them to George Clooney, but the ever-classy Streep persevered without them, noting, "I'd like to thank my agent, Kevin Huvane, and god, Harvey Weinstein."

Boomers cleaned up at the Golden Globes, taking four of the top seven film categories as well as television honors. Along with Streep, George Clooney took best actor honors for "The Descendants"; Christopher Plummer, supporting actor, for "Beginners"; Jessica Lange, supporting actress, for "American Horror Story"; Martin Scorsese, best director, for "Hugo"; Steven Spielberg, best animated film, for "Adventures of Tintin"; Woody Allen, best screenplay, for "Midnight in Paris"; Kelsey Grammer, best actor in a drama for "Boss" on Starz; and Madonna, best original song, for "Masterpiece" in "W.E.," the film she directed. Morgan Freeman received a lifetime achievement award. Check out the complete list of winners here.
