Best Film: Continue Reading…

There were some good bits in some of the speeches for the SAG! Here are some of my faves~

JAVIER BARDEM:

My grandparents were actors in a time when actors were not allowed to be buried on sacred land, because they were homosexuals and prostitutes. So, it’s been a long way to come here, and that’s something we the actors should apply to ourselves.

TINA FEY:

If you’ve seen me on the show with Alec Baldwin, then you know it’s sort of like watching Fred Astaire dance with a hat rack. And after a while, you’re like, “Oh, that hat rack is pretty good, too.”

CHARLES DURNING:

Hello, Mic.

DANIEL DAY-LEWIS:

Heath Ledger gave it to me. [applause] In “Monster’s Ball,” that character that he created, it seemed to be almost like an unformed being, retreating from themselves, retreating from his father, from his life, even retreating from us, and yet we wanted to follow him, and yet we’re scared to follow him almost. It was unique. And then, of course, in “Brokeback Mountain,” he was unique, he was perfect. [applause] And that scene in the trailer at the end of the film is as moving as anything that I think I’ve ever seen. And I’d like to dedicate this to Heath Ledger. So, thank you very much. Thank you so much.

JULIE CHRISTIE:

And if I’ve forgotten anybody, well, it’s just that I’m still in character.

I’m so sad for Marion not winning, though Christie’s performance was moving… I’m still supporting Marion for the Oscar. LOL’ Come on! They showed the “Marcel! Marcel!” clip… that is like the best clip in the film, one of the longest scenes on the film and one of Marion’s finest!
