WILLIAM PETERSEN: Well, this is a shock. The only explanation for this is that somehow in the last year, every one of you tried to act with rubber gloves and tweezers. [laughter] Although I will have to say that when you share your close-up with carpet fibers, you're doing a little bit of ensemble acting. [laughter]

The best thing about being an actor is that we get to hang out with other actors. We enjoy being with each other every day, we care about each other, we're friends, and that's truly our reward. We're proud to be members of the Screen Actors Guild, the best private club in the world, and we would like to thank our fellowship of gypsies for this lovely award.

Thank you. Peace. [applause]
