Oh, bleep. Meryl Streep, who's rarely without her reading glasses to accept an acting award, left them at her table on Sunday's Golden Globes after winning a best actress trophy for The Iron Lady.

Once onstage, she noticed her trusty specs were missing -- and that's when she dropped the S-bomb, bleeped out by the NBC telecast's censors.

"Oh s--t, I forgot my glasses. Oh! I'm going to have to remember my speech," she said.

Backstage, Streep owned up to her mistake in an Access Hollywood interview, saying: "I said s--t on TV! I did. ... I said (it) and I don’t normally say -- well, I do normally say that, but I don’t say it on TV." (Also bleeped: Ricky Gervais, while introducing presenters Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas.)

Streep said she had written "such a good speech" but would now have to send an email to everyone she forgot to thank.

One person she remembered: The Help's Viola Davis, her competitior for the award and the winner of last week's Critic's Choice trophy, whom Streep called "my hero."
