Cate Blanchett Slams Matthew McConaughey At The SAG Awards

When Cate Blanchett took to the stage to accept her SAG Award for Best Actress, her acceptance speech was almost instantly cut off by a teleprompter informing her she had run out of time.

"I've been away from the film industry for a long time making theater ... 29 seconds?! Matthew McConaughey spoke about Neptune and I think I can have five seconds," she scoffed, to much applause.

Blanchett was primarily taking aim at the ceremony procedures, but McConaughey's speech was certainly a bit off-the-cuff.

When he accepted the statue for Best Actor, in addition to talking about Neptune, McConaughey told a story about a man who escaped Russia and built a boat.

Blanchett won a Golden Globe just three days earlier and beat out Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Sandra Bullock and Emma Thompson for the SAG award.
