MARK RUFFALO: No way. Okay. Okay, wow. I was not expecting that honestly. Whew.
Okay. I have to, first of all, thank Open Road. Thank Participant. Thank our producers. Thank Tom McCarthy and Josh Singer, who who just who just took every single opportunity to tell the truth. They didn't take any cheap way. It was always the truth, and honored these people, these victims, who are dead, and the survivors, who are still alive of one of the most horrific things that our culture has allowed to happen. And and this movie allows them to be seen in a world, in a world that has been blind to them.
And so, it is such an honor to be standing in front of you on behalf of them and this amazing cast.
And I want to pass this to Michael, who I love, because he should be talking tonight as well.
MICHAEL KEATON: Thanks. Thanks. This is for how great these guys are, but for me, personally, I think I speak for everyone. Honestly, this is not only for the survivors of this horrific situation, but for me, personally. And I'm only speaking for me, this is really for the disenfranchised everywhere. This is for every Flint, Michigan in the world. This is for the powerless. This is for the powerful, who take advantage of the powerless. And you can hang me for that. I don't really care. That's who I am proud to be part of this. And thank you very much.
It comes down to two things: There's fair and there's unfair. And I'm always going to vote for the fair. I'm always going to vote for the good guys.
Thanks for this. This means a lot.
LEONARDO DiCAPRIO: I – I am truly humbled by this because it comes from all of you, my fellow actors. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
When I was 15 years old, I was lucky enough to get a film called This Boy's Life. And for about a year after that, I watched as many films as I possibly could, films from Jimmy Cagney all the way to Robert De Niro, and it gave me such a tremendous respect for this craft, the craft of acting. I was in all their performances, and I was incredibly inspired.
So for any young actors out there, I encourage you to watch the history of cinema. Because as the history of cinema unfolds, you realize that we all stand on the shoulders of giants.
So I want to thank all of those actors from the past that have inspired me and all the actors that are in this room.
This means so much to me. Thank you so very much.
This film would not have been possible without the craft of our director Alejandro Iñárritu. Alejandro, thank you for your fierce authenticity, your creative genius, a genius that you share with our cinematographer Chivo, our entire crew, the entire cast that I got to work alongside, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter, Forrest Goodluck, Arthur RedCloud, Duane Howard and, of course, the great Tom Hardy.
I want to thank my entire team, especially Rick Yorn. This film would not have happened without you. Everyone at Fox and New Regency, especially Arnon Milchan. He stuck with us to the bitter end.
And my parents. Thank you for listening to an overly ambitious, slightly annoying, 13 year old kid, who wanted to go on auditions everyday after school. I would not be standing here without you.
BRIE LARSON: Thank you. Huh. This is so incredible.
I feel like I was born questioning everything about reality, feeling lost and alone and always worried that I was deeply unlovable. And watching your movies, to all of my SAG members, helped, made me feel less alone and made me feel like that was a safe place for me to explore my creativity. So, thank you.
I need to thank the cast of my film. Jacob Tremblay, my inspiration. Everything that is this movie is because of you. Joan Allen, William H. Macy, Sean Bridgers, Tom McCamus, and anyone else, all of the rest of our crew. Lenny, thank you so much for this opportunity. Emma, thank you for writing such an incredible story for us to play out.
Thank you, Anne, my manager; Chris, my agent; Lindsey, my publicist; my wonderful boyfriend, Alex, I love so much.
Oh, man. Thank you so much. I remember getting my SAG card from "Law and Order." That was 20 years ago. So thanks for that, man. Listen, Cary Fukanaga, you are a "G" for making this movie. You toted this script around for 7 years, and I'm thankful to take this award on your behalf. Ted something from Netflix whatever your name is well done for your belief, Bro. Red Crown; the team; Riva; Daniela; Amy, you are amazing. The Ghanaian cast and crew were incredible. They worked so hard, and I'm really proud. Listen, you know, my my team Roger Scharts, Rich Fields, Sam Branjel (names spelled phonetically), you guys worked really hard for me, and I love you so much. I'm forgetting some people. But I want to tell you, man, we made a film about real people and real lives, you know; and to be, you know, awarded for it is very special, because a lot of people were damaged for that. So thank you for giving this film some light, man. Respect. Love.
ALICIA VIKANDER / Gerda Wegener "THE DANISH GIRL" (Focus Features)
ALICIA VIKANDER: Oh, my. Thank you. Thank you, SAGAFTRA for this, and then thank you to to my fellow actors, to my friends, to my peers, to well, this is honestly, this is the highest honor I think just to be invited to join this stage because of you. Thank you. You know, I I was I was remembering when I when I grew up. My my mum's an actress, so I used to go and watch her on stage at the theatre, and I I loved to watch her rehearse. I loved to watch her perform; but already when I was a young girl, I was always, I think, the most captivated by what I saw. I saw a sudden thrill. I saw a an excitement of a collaboration and exchange of camaraderie between actors by fellow actors; and and I learned then, and I know still that acting is not in above all. That magic only happens between acting companions.
And, Eddie, you're here tonight. I want to thank you, and Mattias, and everyone in this amazing cast that I was on this journey with. And, also, the a performance is not made on me, by us. It's by everyone who thoroughly talented and be the talented people behind the camera, the people who gave us, the words, the directions, the makeup, the costume, hair, because all of this which together was what was able to create a character and a story that not alone we actors can tell. So thank you to an amazing crew and to everyone who was passionately and multi focused, too. Too oh, I can't remember. Working title.
And then to everyone in world involved that helped me from the transgender community, and their friends, and loved ones, I couldn't have done those role and done it without you guys. So thank you so much. And to my family, thank you.
