Whoo! Thank you so much. What a welcome, oh my God! Wow. Well first… I’d like to thank God, just for this moment. Also I really want to take out the time to thank my cast. Because of you I was able to work and learn from the best. [applause] Yes, you are the best. Everybody in this room is the best.

I’d also like to thank my producers, Larry and Patty, and Bill Condon, and my director, thank you so much for believing in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself. [applause] You all changed the way I think as an artist.

And I also would like to thank the Screen Actors Guild. You are the heart of this industry.

And just thank you for noticing little ol’ me, and for accepting me. And thank you for making me feel so welcome. And thank you for this honor. [applause] Thank you so much. [applause]
