Critics’ Choice Awards 2016: Watch Amy Schumer’s drunken acceptance speeches

Critics Choice Awards 2016

Amy Schumer is not new to comedy by any means, but her career has completely taken off over the past year or so. She’s easily one of the hottest comics in the world at the moment, and she was acknowledged once again in Sunday at the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards. Schumer beat out some serious competition to take the Best Actress in a Comedy category over Jennifer Lawrence in Joy, Tina Fey in Sisters, Melissa McCarthy in Spy and Lily Tomlin in Grandma.

Schumer also took home the coveted MVP Award during last night’s show.

The best parts of the evening might not have been any of the awards themselves, however. Instead, Schumer’s acceptance speeches, which were both delivered after the young actress had enjoyed quick a few cocktails, were both pretty hilarious. This should help paint a picture: Schumer stumbled and lost one of her shoes on the way up to deliver here second speech.
