Transcript Oprah Winfrey Presents: Tuesdays with Morrie

God, that’s heavy! And wonderful! Well, first of all, -- in my 45 seconds -- I would like to thank Oprah for the part of a lifetime; to Kate, one of the best producers to ever work for, and her entire staff. Kate Forte, who won the Producers Guild Award for this show. Of course to our director – who, I think did a superb job -- Mick Jackson, who won the Directors Guild award last night – we’re making a sweep with this sucker.

Anyway, and also not only to a marvelous supporting cast. But above all to Hank Azaria, who is one of the best and most giving actors that I’ve ever worked with. I honestly feel that if it were not for what Hank gave me, I would not be up here tonight. And, I don’t deserve it any more than he does. But at any rate, I love it.

Well that’s about 45 and I better cut it now - What the hell. I cannot tell you how proud I am to be a member of this Guild and I thank you for this honor.
