Thank you. What a tremendous honor to be recognized by one’s peers. [with slight British accent] I’ve been acting for some 25 years now and this is a tremendous honor to me… no, I’m sorry. [laughter] It’s just when the British people come and get the awards, it’s so smooth with their stuff. And I feel goofy up here ‘cause I don’t be winning stuff.

But thank you so much, this is a huge honor. And thank you Bill Condon for directing and putting me in your wonderful movie. Thank you. [applause] Thank you to the cast and crew of “Dreamgirls” and thank you to DreamWorks, and Jeffrey Katzenberg, Steven Spielberg, and David Geffen, and Brad Grey, and Stacey Snider and everyone there that was involved with this picture. I’m just so happy to be part of it.

And thank all of you and thank you, Tracey, for fixing everything. Bye-bye you all. [applause]
