After winning the award for Best Performance By An Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film at the Golden Globes on Sunday night, Tom Hiddleston triggered several thousand gag reflexes with his humble-braggy acceptance speech. Tom talked about going to South Sudan with UNICEF and how people from Doctors Without Borders told him they binge watched The Night Manager. Tom patted himself on the back for providing “some relief and entertainment” to them. A lot of people online (and in the GGs audience) weren’t exactly feeling his “Congratulations, me!” speech. TMZ brought up the speech hate to Tom as he was leaving a GG afterparty, and Tom sort of shrugged it off.
But clearly Tom had been thinking about it, and it must have been bothering him. Because yesterday he hopped on Facebook to apologize.
That answers a question I’ve had since the summer. When Tom was frolicking on the beach with Taylor Swift in an I Heart TS tank top, I thought to myself “Isn’t he at all nervous that this much obvious PR whoring might not be good for his career?” He clearly wasn’t! Based on the reason for his apology, it sounds like if he was actually nervous, his tank top would have said I Heart TH instead.
