Renée Zellweger's Southern Accent Left the Internet Feeling Confused

By

Renée Zellweger won a Golden Globe Award for the Best Actress in a Motion Picture on Monday, Jan. 6. While her remarkable performance and her kindly-worded, beautifully-written acceptance speech garnered loud applause, there was something else about her appearance that caught the attention of the audience.

Renée Zellweger' Southern accent came as a surprise, leading many to express their sense of disbelief via cleverly-worded posts on social media. 

Renée Zellweger's Golden Globe acceptance speech (and Southern accent) surprised the internet. 

Renée won a Golden Globe Award for her exceptional performance in Rupert Goold's 2019 drama about Judy Garland's last years, titled Judy. 

Although the Texas-born, Los Angeles-based actress made hundreds of public appearances during the height of her career, viewers didn't expect her to use the accent spoken in her hometown during her Golden Globe acceptance speech.
