In Which Jane Fonda Gives Her BAFTA Award Acceptance Speech Mid-Arrest
For the last several weeks, Jane Fonda and friends have been getting arrested during her Fire Drill Friday climate change protests, and, in turn, providing us with a ton of adorable photo and video ops to swoon over. I mean, come on, Jack McCoy getting arrested to save the planet?
SHOOT IT DIRECTLY INTO MY VEINS (AND ALSO SOMEHOW MAKE IT A STORY ARC ON AN UPCOMING EPISODE OF SVU).
And Ted Danson's adorable face while getting arrested?
Not to be outdone at her own protest, and unable to attend the BAFTA awards ceremony in person, Fonda accepted her Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award For Excellence In Film (probably for Barbarella) in a video, while she was being arrested.
How bad ass is that?
Previously, Fonda has vowed to continue getting arrested in an act of civil disobedience for fourteen Fridays in a row, until she has to resume filming for Grace and Frankie, a very good Netflix show in which Lili Tomlin plays my mom:
"I'm going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the [television] series and I'm going to go to D.C. and I'm going to have a rally every Friday," Fonda said in an interview with The Washington Post. "It'll be called 'Fire Drill Friday.' And we're going to engage in civil disobedience and we're going to get arrested every Friday."
Good for her! Might as well use that privilege for something!
Anyway, this is now your open thread! Talk amongst yourselves and enjoy!
