Congratulations to Helen Mirren for winning the Screen Actors Guild Award as Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for “Phil Spector”. This has been Helen’s tenth nomination and fourth win. She has received the coveted trophy before as Best Supporting Actress and Best Ensemble for “Gosford Park”, Best Actress for “The Queen” and Best Television Actress for “Elizabeth I.” Here is a transcript of Helen’s speech:
Goodness me, this – I am unprepared. Elisabeth was so extraordinary and Elisabeth… [applauds Elisabeth Moss] from me. [applause] Anyway, I love this little guy, he’s so sexy, isn’t he? You know, sort of naked, but not quite. And quite exciting. [laughter] [laughs] I don’t feel at all saggy, I feel quite perky, actually, [laughs] winning this [laughter] – after all. I’m thrilled. Thank you so much. I had the incredible advantage of acting with a person that you all know, you all love, you all respect, I believe, beyond any other actor, and that’s Al Pacino. [applause] And to work with Al and watch him close hand was just an incredible lesson for me. We can always learn all the time. Thank you David Mamet, thank you, HBO and everything. And thank you very much. [applause]
