  • Quotes

    • Eva Marie Saint : (accepting her award for Actress in a Supporting Role) I may have the baby right here. But I would love to thank Elia Kazan, and Sam Spiegel, Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Boris Kaufman, all the longshoremen. Thank you.

    • Grace Kelly : (accepting her award for Best Actress) The thrill of this moment keeps me from saying what I really feel. I can only say thank you with all my heart to all who made this possible for me. Thank you.

    • Edmond O'Brien : accepting his award for Actor in a Supporting Role) I'm very grateful. It really can't be March 30th. It must be March 17th.

    • Marlon Brando : accepting his award for Best Actor) It's much heavier than I imagined. I... gosh, I had something to say and I can't remember what I was gonna say for the life of me. I don't think that ever in my life have so many people been so directly responsible for my being so very, very glad. It's a wonderful moment and a rare one and I'm certainly indebted. Thank you.
