Moore’s Globe regrets

Julianne Moore wishes she “took a deep breath” during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards.

The 54-year-old was awarded the Best Actress in a Motion Picture- Drama trophy on Sunday for her performance in Still Alice, in which she stars alongside Kristen Stewart, Kate Bosworth and Alec Baldwin. But she’s admitted she regrets forgetting to say thanks to the former Twilight star.

"I wish I had taken a deep breath and managed to get Kristen [Stewart]'s name out, for one thing, and Alec [Baldwin]'s," she told HuffPost Live. "Slowing down, I think, is the message."

Failing to mention her co-stars may have been due to the fact that the actress didn’t write a speech. According to her, it’s terrible luck to pen the words beforehand.

"I also feel like it's bad juju. I'm oddly superstitious, too. You know, you feel if you're too prepared, you're asking for it," she confessed.

Aside from omitting people from her acceptance speech, Julianne took issue with her own posture on the evening. Apparently having reviewed the footage, she noted her concerns.

"I didn't stand up straight… As I walked up to the stage, I was all hunched over," she added.

Self criticisms aside, Julianne won for her portrayal of a middle aged Alzheimer’s sufferer in the movie. She in fact had two shots at a win, as she was also nominated for her role in Map to the Stars in the Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy but lost out in that category to Amy Adams who won for Big Eyes.
