Claire Danes may have just won a Best Actress Golden Globe for her role on Homeland, but we’ll always remember her as Angela Chase, the angsty teen she played so perfectly on My So-Called Life. And here she is in 1995 after accepting the Golden Globe for the very same category.
Last night she referenced her first acceptance speech, in which she was so stunned that she forgot to thank her parents; and as you can see in this clip, she said “um” about eight times.
While 15-year old Claire’s acceptance speech may not have been as poised as 32-year-old Claire’s, she still looked great in a quintessentially ’90s simple black strappy number. We’ll always have a soft spot for ’90s redhead Claire, but we also think she looked great in that J. Mendel gown last night. Which look do you prefer?
