Cate Blanchett takes a dig at Matthew McConaughey. Watch her at Saturday night's Screen Actors Guild awards.
"This is extraordinary. Thank you. I've been away from the film industry for a long time making theater. Twenty-nine seconds? Matthew McConaughey spoke about Neptune, and I think I can have five seconds." (Courtesy of The 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®)
Blanchett was accepting the award for best female actor in a leading role. And here's what she was referring to — McConaughey accepting the same award for best male.
"You're the subject, you're the eye. You're first-person seeing it through that character's eyes. That doesn't always happen. But boy, when it does, it feels like they could put a blindfold on you and put you in a spaceship and take you to Neptune. You could hop off on the planet, and they better have the sprockets rolling when you get off that spaceship because you are going to behave as your man."

McConaughey went on for a few minutes, telling a story about a man he met from Russia and much more. It was a lengthy speech for an awards show, and he didn't even get that "get off the stage" music.
And that's probably why Blanchett felt a little cheated and is making headlines for "mocking" McConaughey. (Via Us Weekly)
No further comment from Blanchett or McConaughey on what went down Saturday night, but awards show season has been kind to both of them.
