Olivia Colman doesn't seem to realize she's a famous actress, and it's so stinking cute

Olivia Colman is back with another endearing acceptance speech, and she's proven once again to be the most relatable actress ever.

Last year, Olivia Colman stole the show at the Oscars with her incredulous, off-the-cuff acceptance speech after winning the Best Actress in a Leading Role award. Stunned that she had won, the British actress was so genuine and obviously unrehearsed in her reaction that you couldn't help but love her. She was all of us, giddy and disbelieving and delightfully awkward about a lifelong dream come true.

If you missed it, it's worth a watch before seeing this year's speech:

Despite having won the highest movie award an actress can receive, and despite being cast as the queen herself in the hit show The Crown and playing an iconic role in the award-winning comedy Fleabag, Colman doesn't seem to have internalized that she is a famous, critically-acclaimed actress. At last night's Golden Globes, she won the award for Best Actress in a Television Series for her role as Queen Elizabeth—and yet again, she charmed everyone with her impromptu acceptance speech.

Colman began with a simple thank you, then said, "Oooh, I said I had money on this not happening. For the last year, I've felt like I was living someone else's life, and now I definitely feel like I've won someone else's award."

She thanked Netflix and the Hollywood Foreign Press, then showed her flummoxed—and apparently slightly tipsy—hand.

"I don't know what to say, because I genuinely... I'd already gotten a little bit boozy because I thought this wasn't going to happen. Thank you…umm…completely stumped."

Much like last year's fangirling of Meryl Streep during her Oscars speech, Colman became more of a starry-eyed, celebrity-sighting audience member than famous actress winning her own top award.

"Honestly, sitting there and watching everybody, it's so exciting. We've gone, 'Look who it is! Look who's there!'" Then she added, as if honored by the entire idea of being invited in the first place, "So, thank you for having us. Thank you for having me. I've had such a lovely time."

How adorable is it that she doesn't seem to realize she's one of the famous people she's referring to? After all, she was the one winning the award for Best Actress on that stage. She was the one winning her third Golden Globe in as many nominations. In that moment, she was the reason all of those celebrities were gathered in the room. People in attendance were undoubtedly looking at her, saying "Look who it is!" And she appears to be totally oblivious to it all. She's still genuinely surprised to find herself among the entertainment industry elite and maintains a humble and childlike wonder at it all.

We just love you, Olivia Colman. Please don't change.

In the last 20 years, the internet has become almost as essential as water or air. Every day, many of us wake up and check it for the news, sports, work, and social media. We log on from our phones, our computers, even our watches. It's a luxury so often taken for granted. With the COVID-19 pandemic, as many now work from home and children are going to school online, home access is a more critical service than ever before.

On the flip side, some 3.6 billion people live without affordable access to the internet. This digital divide — which has only widened over the past 20 years — has worsened wealth inequality within countries, divided developed and developing economies and intensified the global gender gap. It has allowed new billionaires to rise, and contributed to keeping billions of others in poverty.

In the US, lack of internet access at home prevents nearly one in five teens from finishing their homework. One third of households with school-age children and income below $30,000 don't have internet in their homes, with Black and Hispanic households particularly affected.

The United Nations is working to highlight the costs of the digital divide and to rapidly close it. In September 2019, for example, the UN's International Telecommunication Union and UNICEF launched Giga, an initiative aimed at connecting every school and every child to the internet by 2030.

Closing digital inequity gaps also remains a top priority for the UN Secretary-General. His office recently released a new Roadmap for Digital Cooperation. The UN Foundation has been supporting both this work, and the High Level Panel on Digital Cooperation co-chaired by Melinda Gates and Jack Ma, which made a series of recommendations to ensure all people are connected, respected, and protected in the digital age. Civil society, technologists and communications companies, such as Verizon, played a critical role in informing those consultations. In addition, the UN Foundation houses the Digital Impact Alliance (DIAL), which advances digital inclusion through streamlining technology, unlocking markets and accelerating digitally enabled services as it works to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

We're more than nine months into the COVID-19 pandemic and things are only getting worse. On Wednesday, December 2, America had its deadliest day yet with nearly 3,000 people succumbing to the virus.

America is experiencing its greatest public health crisis in generations and the only way we're getting out of it is by widespread administration of a vaccine.

However, if people don't take the vaccine, there will be no end to this horror story.

This year, we've all experienced a little more stress and anxiety. This is especially true for youth facing homelessness, like Megan and Lionel. Enter Covenant House, an international organization that helps transform and save the lives of more than a million homeless, runaway, and trafficked young people.

Watch the full story:

Visit AmazonSmile Charity Lists to donate directly to a charity of your choice or simply shop smile.amazon.com and Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price of eligible products to your selected charity.

Sometimes it seems like social media is too full of trolls and misinformation to justify its continued existence, but then something comes along that makes it all worth it.

Apparently, a song many of us have never heard of shot to the top of the charts in Italy in 1972 for the most intriguing reason. The song, written and performed by Adriano Celentano and is called "Prisencolinensinainciusol" which means...well, nothing. It's gibberish. In fact, the entire song is nonsense lyrics made to sound like English, and oddly, it does.

Occasionally, you can hear what sounds like a real word or phrase here and there—"eyes" and "color balls died" and "alright" a few times, for example—but it mostly just sounds like English without actually being English. It's like an auditory illusion and it does some super trippy things to your brain to listen to it.

Plus the video someone shared to go with it is fantastic. It's gone crazy viral because how could it not.

With vaccine rollouts for the novel coronavirus on the horizon, humanity is getting its first ray of hope for a return to normalcy in 2021. That normalcy, however, will depend on enough people's willingness to get the vaccine to achieve some level of herd immunity. While some people are ready to jump in line immediately for the vaccine, others are reticent to get the shots.

Hesitancy runs the gamut from outright anti-vaxxers to people who trust the time-tested vaccines we already have but are unsure about these new ones. Scientists have tried to educate the public about the development of the new mRNA vaccines and why they feel confident in their safety, but getting that information through the noise of hot takes and misinformation is tricky.

To help increase the public's confidence in taking the vaccine, three former presidents have volunteered to get their shots on camera. President George W. Bush initially reached out to Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx to ask how he could help promote a vaccine once it's approved. Presidents Obama and Bill Clinton have both stated that they will take the vaccine if it is approved and will do so publicly if it will help more people feel comfortable taking it. CNN says it has also reached out to President Jimmy Carter to see if he is on board with the idea as well.

A big part of responsible leadership is setting an example. Though these presidents are no longer in the position of power they once held, they are in a position of influence and have offered to use that influence for the greater good.
