    • QUOTES (5)

      • Robert Downey Jr.: (accepting his award for Outstanding Performance By A Male In A Comedy Series) Okay, yeah, this is great, and it's my peers, and so many people here that I've learned from over the years, and this is exceptional. I've got to thank my mom, who is in Pennsylvania right now. She's the reason that I wanted to become an actor, watching her, growing up. And it seemed like, in addition to being a great mom, there was this magical thing she did, and that made me ecstatic. This is for you, Mom. I would like to thank David Kelley, of course, Pam Wisne, Bill D'Elia, Alice and the other Pam. Calista, as always, I love working with you. The rest of the cast is so great. And Peter MacNicol, my co-nominee (applause) and the other nominees as well. (applause) The truth is, we know this is about dedication. This about - you give your life to this. And we know what we sacrifice in order to give ourselves to this art form. And I know that Peter MacNicol, right now, has his sides for our scenes this week at the table. (laughter) You got my vote, brother. (applause)

      • Allison Janney: (accepting her award for Outstanding Performance By A Female In A Drama Series) This is truly a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful surprise, and I was just thinking about the fact that it's amazing that I'm standing her tonight because there were so many times back in the early '80s and early '90s when I was in New York trying to be an actress and not succeeding very well, and I quit so many times. And I finally decided I was quitting for the final time -- this was it -- and I went in to take an aptitude test to find out what else I could possibly do in this world. [laughter] And they told me I would make an excellent systems analyst. (laughter) I still don't know what that is. (laughter) So I'm just to be able to be -- say I'm a working actress. And I thank Aaron Sorkin for this beautifully part and Tommy Schlamme and -- I've always thought of acting as a team sport and I have one of the best teams to play with: Martin Sheen, Brad Whitford, Richard Schiff, Rob Lowe, Dule Hill, Janel Maloney, Melissa Fitzgerald -- am I forgetting anybody from my table? (laughter) John Spencer -- God bless -- I don't care -- who else did I forget? I thank you all so much. And I thank David Less and Chris Hensey and my parents and my family. And I'm so truly proud to call myself -- to be able to finally say -- and I'm going to say it right here: I'm Alison Janney and I'm an actress. (applause) Thank you.

      • Martin Sheen: (accepting his award for Outstanding Performance By A Male In A Drama Series) Oh, my, my, thanks so much. I appreciate this. How do you separate us from each other. It's not possible, Tim and James. And, God, I'm so good, I remembered those two. (laughter) Ed and Anthony, thanks so much. (laughter/applause) The only thing that really separates us is age. I'm the oldest. I have fewer future opportunities, so I'll accept this with gratitude from SAG, and praise to my fellow actors. Allison gave the whole family, the "West Wing" family, thanks and praise. I can't remember my own name half the time. (laughter) It's the awards season, and, you know, it's a two-edged sword. We're told to remember that the higher the monkey climbs, the more he shows his ass. (laughter/applause) So you're really seeing the worst part of me. (laughter/applause) I don't know what else to say! Oh, my, I will thank Tommy Schlamme and John Wells and Llewellyn Wells and particularly Aaron Sorkin. "The West Wing" is the creation of Aaron Sorkin. We all live in the book and volume of his imagination of his brain, and we spring forth from the measure of his heart, his compassion, his humanity. So he's the guy. When we say "West Wing" on "The West Wing," we mean Aaron Sorkin. He's the reason for our season, both one and two. Personally, I want to thank him more than anyone because of what he has given all of us all the time, every show, every week. And if he doesn't know how much we really love him, stick around, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Thanks so much. (applause)

      • Don Cheadle: (accepting the award for Outstanding Performance By The Cast Of A Motion Picture on behalf of the cast of Traffic) I was asked to speak for our cast -- I don't know why. But in this film there were 135 speaking roles, actually. (applause) And I would like to read every single name now. (laughter) No,but I will hit some highlights: Michael, Catherine, Benicio, Luis, Dennis Quaid, Erika Christensen, Topher Grace, Amy Irving, Jacob Vargas, Cliff Collins, Miguel Ferrer, Steven Bauer, Ben Bratt, D.W. Moffett, Peter Riegert, Tomas Milian, Marisol Sanchez, James Brolin, Albert Finney, Steven Gaghan for giving us the wonderful words. (applause) And of course, the captain of our ship, Steven Soderbergh for shepherding this whole thing. Thank you.

      • Julia Roberts: (accepting award for Best Female Actor in a Motion Picture) Oh it's padded. (referring to award) Set him down. I love Jeff Bridges. We were talking about him at breakfast. (laughter) This is -- freaky. This is -- you know, if this was a prom this would be like the best school ever to go to. (laughter) But it's not, so I'll be serious -- in my own special way. Thank you so much. To be a girl and to enjoy anything that has to do with SAG, you know, you have to figure it's pretty important. (laughter, applause) God, I'm just shaking. And thank you, actors -- just great, great actors -- and now I really feel so much better about my level of talent than I did this afternoon. (laughter) And I appreciate that so much, because I'm not always sure. And it's not just me. There's just so many people. You guys know, I'm a fraud to stand here alone because, God, there's so many people that make me look like I know what I'm doing. And so I - I -- there's all these invisible people behind me that I wish you could see, because they're lovely and they're sweet and they work so hard, and they make what I do look like it's easy. And we all know that it's kind of torture. But, you know, they pay us so much. (laughter) So I just want to thank Steven Soderbergh, my own personal god. And Albert Finney, who's fabulous, and Aaron Eckhart and all the wonderful actors that played -- God bless you, Sam Waterston -- [laughter] who played my children. And in my little homebase, Elaine Goldsmith Thomas and Jeff Berg, my agent, and Marcy Engleman, and everybody that I've ever met in my life. And my sister, Lisa, who knows so many people in SAG, and she said,"I told everybody to vote for you." So Lisa, thank you because it worked! [laughter] And Benjamin, honey -- thank you just for being my best friend and being just the most handsome date a gal could want. So thank you all! (applause)
