Oh... Thank you, to all the members of the Screen Actors Guild. It is such an honor to be nominated among these amazing ladies: America, Christina, Mary Louise – break a leg tonight on Broadway – Tracey Ullman, I had your album memorized and I will listen to it on a giant Walkman, every day. I am an amazing huge fan of yours.

I want to thank my daughter, Alice, for being the funniest person in my family; for coining phrases like, “I want to go to there.” And—[laughter]—and sometimes just putting on pretend makeup in the mirror. And she’ll turn to me and say, “I look like Barack Obama.” [laughter] She has somehow gotten it in her head that it’s a good thing to resemble a famous politician. I don’t know where she got that idea. [laughter] But it kind of is a little stroke of luck if it happens.

And I want to thank Alice for her patience. And some day she’ll be old enough to watch “30 Rock” reruns on the Internet, and understand where mommy was going at 6 a.m. every day, for all that time. And she’ll look up at me and say, “What do you mean you don’t get residuals for this?” [laughter]

I love you, Alice. Take care of me when I’m old and broke! Thank you. [applause]
