Johnny Depp Gets Cut Off After Bizarre Hollywood Award Show Speech

Depp mumbled and staggered his way through a speech Friday night at the Hollywood Film Awards.

Johnny Depp attended the Hollywood Film Awards Friday night in Los Angeles to present an award to Shep Gordon, a Hollywood talent agent.

He began the speech by staggering around the microphone as the audience laughed.

Then things got even weirder, as Depp slurred his words through much of the rest of the speech.

And finally the entire thing fell apart as Depp trailed off, his mic cut out, and CBS quickly cut away to a shot of California's hills.

Most people who saw the speech seemed to think Depp was intoxicated, though some expressed concern about his condition:

All I got from the #HollywoodAwards was that Johnny Depp is either drunk or on some type of substance.

Depp's speech also drew criticism from other celebrities:

I find the whole unprepared, "I don't give a shit", possibly wasted artist persona really, really unexciting.
