What Did Aziz Ansari Say During His Golden Globes Speech?

Exactly What Aziz Ansari Said in His Censored Acceptance Speech

When Aziz Ansari walked away with the best actor in a musical or comedy television series at the Golden Globes on Monday for his role in the Netflix show Master of None, no one was more surprised than Aziz himself.

"I genuinely didn't think I was going to win because all of the websites said I was going to lose," a shocked Aziz said during his acceptance speech before getting bleeped when describing what it would have felt like if he had lost out on the award two years in a row. "I'm glad we won this one because it would've really sucked to lose two of these in a row; it would've been a really sh*tty moment for me, but this is nice."

In addition to thanking the cast and crew of Master of None, the show Aziz created and stars in as the frustrated actor Dev Shah, Aziz gave a shout out to the country that inspired much of the second season.

"I want to thank Italy for all of the amazing food we ate in season two," Aziz said before thanking his parents — who also play his parents on the show —"for giving me so much love."

Aziz's accomplishment is a historic win as he becomes the first Asian American to nab an acting honour in the television category. If there's something that Aziz is a master of, it's winning big.
