Actress Sally Fields took the opportunity to express her feelings for war when she accepted her Emmy award Sunday, but Fox wasn't pleased with speech. A flustered Fields, 60, was cut off by the network right after she spoke of mothers whose sons go to war saying, "I am proud to be one of those women, and let's face it, if mothers ruled there would be no..."

What Fox cut out was, "god-damned wars in the first place."

Using air time when millions of viewers are watching can be a risky thing to do, but Fields clearly felt passionate enough to let her thoughts take the stage. Why did Fox choose to sensor the worlds of the Brothers and Sisters star?

In a statement released from Fox, the company said, "Some language during the live broadcast may have been considered inappropriate by some viewers. As a result, Fox's broadcast standards executives determined it appropriate to drop sound and picture during those portions of the show."
