(Entering the stage and talking to Miss Golden Globe, Jack Nicholson’s daughter) Thank you! (Applause) Thank you. Thank you very much. I told Lorraine she came to a birthday party at my house in Beverly Hills with snakes… we had snakes! (Laughter) But then we moved back east. (Laughter) Oh my God, thank you everybody, thank you so much, I’m really thrilled. I think I worked with everybody in the room. (Laugther) Yes I have… (Meryl pulls out an acceptance speech) I’m gonna forget everything, I know… (refering to the audience) Oh shut up it’s not that long. (Laughter). First of all, congratulations to the nominees in all the categories for Best Actress, it’s like a million categories for Best Actress – but Annette and Toni and Beyonce and RenĂ©e, Penelope, Judi, Maggie and Helen and Kate, I just want you to know, all of you, that this is been such a fun year to watch movies because of you gals. (Applause) And it makes you wanna cry with graditude – until next year! (Laughter) I just wanna thank David Frankel and Aline Brosh McKenna for this sparkling script, its really sharp, smart direction made it just a pleasure. And thanks to Wendy Finerman and Carla Hackman and Elizabeth Gabler and Karen Rosenfelt for sheparding us through. Thank you for Tommy Rothman who signs the cheques and Rupert who signs his cheques. (Laughter). And thank you to Pat Field and Molly and Nina and the people in warderobe because that was like special effects for us! And… oh gosh, everybody. Delicious Emily Blunt, (throws her a kiss), darling! Darling Annie Hathaway, dreadful Stanley Tucci (Laughter). For the difficult job they had making me seem monstrous, anyway (Laughter). I just, I wanna thank everbody, especially everybody at FOX that let us donate all those clothes to “Equality Now” and Breast Cancer Research and Dress for Success (Applause), that was really classy! Totally great! And finally I just wanna say, the reason you could see “The Devil Wears Prada” is because it was playing on every theatre screen across America – and that was because they were playing it. And, if you can’t see “Little Children” or “Pan’s Labyrinth” or “The Queen” or… eh, all these great movies that I’ve just seen, “Volver”, “Notes on a Scandal”, “Sherrybaby” then you have to go down to your theater manager and ask him “why” (Applause). ‘Cause its amazing how much you can get if you quietly, clearly and authoritatively demand it! (Laughter) That’s all.
