-Oh, my gosh. Thank you to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press,
indeed, for this. Um, oh, my gosh. You know, none of us are here if
it weren’t for great scripts. And I certainly wouldn’t be
standing here tonight if it weren’t for a great friend
who wrote a great script and insisted I be in it. Mr. Steven Rogers,
thank you for this. [ Cheers and applause ] Very distinctive, unique mother
of a character. [ Laughter ] I thank you for that. Margot, I thank you for your unbelievable, brave,
fearless portrayal of Tonya. You set the bar for everyone.
I love you. Craig Gillespie,
your sense of humor and your passion for what you do
is infectious. Nobody else could’ve done
285 million scenes in 40 days. You’re a genius.
I love you. Tonya Harding is here tonight,
and I just — [ Cheers and applause ] I’d like to thank Tonya for
sharing her story with Steve and allowing him to tell all the
different sides of the story, and what I love about this
movie, this entire — Sebastian, Julianne, everyone in
this movie did is tell a story about class in America, tell a
story about the disenfranchised, tell a story about a woman who was not embraced
for her individuality, tell a story about truth and the
perception of truth in the media and the truths we all tell
ourselves when we wake up in bed every morning and go out
and live our lives. It’s an extraordinary movie.
I’m so proud of it. Thank you to Neon and 30 West
and AI Films and Tom and Brian and Margot — my God — Margot
and Steven produced this, too. It’s ridiculous.
She’s a quadruple threat. I don’t even know. I want to thank my team —
Chris Henze, Alana Rice, Leslie Siebert,
Karen Sanfilippo, and Peter Nelson,
and, of course, I owe this all to a little bird named
Little Man in Smyrna, Georgia. And I thank you all very much
from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.
[ Cheers and applause ]
