GARY OLDMAN: I've -- I've become very emotional.

Thank you SAG-AFTRA for this tremendous honor. I am

honestly and truly thrilled and overjoyed to be in this room

tonight, not only with my amazing fellow nominees, but my

friends and peers.

There are giants of acting in this -- in this room

tonight. Two of them share my table, Geoffrey Rush and Richard

Jenkins. Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, and of course the

extraordinary -- my -- my old sparring partner, Denzel


They are -- they are telling me to -- to wrap up, and

that very sad music seems to follow me everywhere, so I will --

I would just say this: That Churchill reminds us we make a

living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. And

you have given -- you have given enormously tonight, and I am

so deeply, deeply honored and -- and -- and proud to receive

this mag- -- magnificent award.

God -- God bless you all. Thank you.
