"A week ago, I was at a banquet I saw, out of the corner of my eye, Emma Thompson coming over, fighting her way through tables and looking over. I thought, "Oh my god, that's Emma Thompson. That's Emma Thompson.' She came up to me and I lost it. I didn't know what to say! That's what happens when you're so lucky," —Bryan Cranston recalling his fangirl moment with the Saving Mr. Banks star.

"I've been away from the film industry for a long time making theater...29 seconds?! Matthew McConaughey spoke about Neptune and I think I can have five seconds!" Cate Blanchett responding to being cut off during her acceptance speech for Best Actress.

"There's a man I met 20 years ago. He escaped Russia. He was not even a carpenter, built a 17-foot boat and sailed across the Atlantic for decades he held the world record for smallest vessel single-man sailed across the Atlantic. He told me this, he said, 'A genius can be anybody he wants to, but a genius is always one person at a time.' So to that I say, that's what we get to do, isn't it? One man, one woman, one human. At a time. When we do it well. Just keep doing that. Just keep living." Matthew McConaughey delivering his head-scratching acceptance speech after winning the SAG Award for Best Actor.
