As the SAG Awards presented their best in each categories, the honoured winners with their hilarious and poignant acceptance speeches had a lot to say after they snagged their ‘silver-nude’ statues. Tina Fey, Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck, Julianne Moore, Anne Hathaway and many more.
Quoting them lets see what the actors had to say for the special occasion.
Jennifer Lawrence joked that she hasn’t gotten much advice that’s helped her out along the way in her career, coming from a “normal family. “You can probably tell from my public speaking that I haven’t gotten that much advice. I’m still waiting to get a couple tips on how to shut up.” “Now I have this naked statue that means some of you even voted for me, and that is an indescribable feeling. Thank you.” Lawrence, speaking to fellow actors who awarded her atrophy for her performance in ‘Silver Linings Playbook.’ I hope she wins the Oscar TOO!
Tina Fey said her priority when getting dressed tonight was “to be comfortable.” When a reporter asked her how many people played a role in getting her ready today, she replied without missing a beat: “It took 400 people.” “Just tape the `Big Bang Theory’ for once, for crying out loud.” – Best supporting comedy actress winner Tina Fey for ‘30 Rock’ said. She really knows how to give a good speech!
Ben Affleck was in high spirits backstage at the SAG Awards after ‘Argo’ picked up the outstanding performance by a cast statuette tonight, which is easily the night’s biggest honor. Still, Ben took a good-natured dig at his Oscar snub in the best director category in the press room. “To me this has nothing to do with me, it has to do with the incredible people who were in this movie.” – Ben Affleck, whose film “Argo” was a surprise at the SAG Awards. “Sorry to have overlooked you, sir,” Ben apologized to a reporter backstage in the press room after missing his question. “I know how that feels.”
Best supporting actress winner Anne Hathaway after accepting her Screen Actors Guild award for her role in ‘Les Miserables’ said, “I’m just so thrilled I have dental.” She is beautiful and talented and she deserved it!
Daniel Day-Lewis on his co-stars in ‘Lincoln’ said, “My wonderful colleagues, every single cast member gave their characters the kiss of life. Have no doubt that this is an ensemble award.”
Also on his shout-out to Leonardo DiCaprio in his decision to play President Lincoln he amused everyone by saying, “Leo, just in a chance meeting, asked me if I’d given up on the idea because he knew that I’d considered it a while ago….I hadn’t thought about it for a long time, maybe some years, and he said, ‘Don’t give up on it. He’s the greatest man of the 19th century.’ And it stayed in my mind. So this is all Leo’s fault.”
Backstage, first-time SAG winner Bryan Cranston called ‘Breaking Bad’s’ Walter White the role of a lifetime and said he’s proud to know that he’ll be remembered for the character. He said, “Oooh, It is so good to be bad. I am so pleased and so honored to receive this award.” Jokingly he said at the backstage, “I remember posing for this a while back.”
Dick Van Dyke was honored for lifetime achievement at the SAG Awards, and he received a lengthy standing ovation by his fellow actors. He said, “Aren’t we lucky that we found a line of work that doesn’t require growing up?”
“Oh my God. It’s ridiculous.” – Alec Baldwin on his seventh consecutive Screen Actors Guild win for best male actor in a comedy series for ‘30 Rock.’
Julianne Moore thanked her Game Change co-stars after winning a SAG Award. Admitting she was touched so much she said, “Oh wow, thank you so much,” she said. “This means so much to me coming from all the actors who voted. It’s really, really meaningful, and thank you for putting me in the company of these amazing actresses, all of whom I admire so very much.”
