Pedro Pascal, known for his remarkable performances in various acclaimed TV series and films, recently won the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Male Actor in a Drama Series for his role in HBO’s “The Last of Us.” However, what made headlines wasn’t just his victory, but his candid and unforgettable acceptance speech, delivered in a state of inebriation.

Admitting that he thought he wouldn’t win the award, especially after “Succession’s” Kieran Culkin had dominated the same category at previous award shows, Pascal took the stage in a less-than-sober state. “This is wrong for so many reasons,” he confessed to the audience. “I’m a little drunk. I thought I could get drunk. I’m making a fool of myself but thank you so much for this!”

Despite his inebriated state, Pascal expressed genuine gratitude for the honor, recognizing the significance of being recognized by his peers in the industry. “I’ve been in the union since 1999 so this is an incredible f***ing honor,” he exclaimed, albeit struggling to recall the names of his fellow nominees.

As Pascal attempted to express his appreciation to his family, emotions overwhelmed him, leading him to the brink of tears. However, in a moment of vulnerability, he admitted, “I’m going to have a panic attack, and I’m going to leave,” bringing his speech to an end abruptly.

Pascal’s candid and raw acceptance speech quickly became the talk of the town, earning praise for its authenticity and humanizing portrayal of an actor navigating the highs and lows of the industry. Despite the unconventional nature of his remarks, Pascal’s sincerity and humility resonated with audiences, cementing his status as a beloved figure in the entertainment world.

As Pascal continues to captivate audiences with his talent and authenticity, his SAG Award win and unforgettable acceptance speech serve as a reminder of the unpredictable and human side of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
