Cuba Gooding Jr. Gets Wasted, Curses Off Awards Show

by at .

Cuba Gooding Jr. may have won critical praise for his portrayal of O.J. Simpson on this year's FX minseries, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

But the actor is a different kind of juiced in the clip below.

It was filmed at at something called the Footwear News Achievement Awards, which held this past Tuesday in New York City.

Gooding was on hand to present the Social Impact Award to designer friend John Varvatos. Sounds simple enough, right?

But the former Oscar winner, by his own admission, had a tad too much to drink prior to taking the stage... and proceeded to give us one of the more memorable awards introductions of the year.

“Nothing says I love you like f-cking sugar,” the 48-year-old actor said to open, referring, we guess, to the food provided at the event. “F-cking boxed lunched. I’m drunk now, motherf-ckers. Deal with it.”

The crowd laughed right along with Cuba because... let's face it... they knew they were at the Footwear News Achievement Awards.

“I thought the BET Awards were cheap,” Gooding says below. “In the words of Spike Lee, excuse my language but, they can fu-k you too, Spike.”

An insider confirms to The Daily Mail that Gooding went straight for the bar as soon as he got inside the venue, prior to making a "beeline for Rihanna."

Gooding was also telling people that he and his wife are now separated. Ouch. Awkward!

Watch the uncomfortable (and hilarious!) speech play out below:
