Mark Ruffalo ‑ “I Know This Much Is True”
MARK RUFFALO: I love you guys. Oh, God. OK. First of all, this group of actors, these are my peers. These are the people I admire and love and look up to. So it’s an honor to be here with you guys. Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Thank you HBO. Thank you our production team. Thank my family, who lets me go off and bring these crazy people home and they have to live with all these years. Thank you, guys. I want to thank the crew and craftspeople who really carried us through this. Derek Cianfrance, my brother, my partner, my director, thank you for always leading with the ideal of humanity, however it comes: beautiful, ugly, inspiring, sad. I want to thank Wally Lamb for the beautiful story of these twins, for fractured hearts and minds, for the story of America, her brokenness and her promise, forgiveness, healing, and integration. At 54 years, it is my humble belief that what will give all this sadness and loss that we all have lived through meaning is our common humanity. What connects us is greater than what keeps us apart. And the more we include each other and see each other and hear each other, the faster we will heal our broken hearts and minds. We have a dying mother, just like the mother in our story. She is Mother Earth. And we must come to balance with her and honor her, and she’ll heal too. So let’s be courageous together, guys, and let’s turn the page on the cruel past of this nation. The good news is inclusion and justice and care for Mother Earth is breaking out everywhere. The godly light of decency is breaking through the hideous dark storm we’ve been living through. We are all in this together. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. So let’s do this now. I love you.
