Elisabeth Moss – “The Handmaid’s Tale”
ELISABETH MOSS: Thank you. Carol Burnett. OK. I have to go fast. HFPA, thank you so much. Hulu and MGM, thank you to my incredible crew, including especially Colin, Ann and Julie. To my incredible cast, I couldn’t do it without you. Especially to Bruce and Warren. You two are the kind of men that we need more of in this business, and I thank you.
To my team. You know who you are, and I love you. My mom and my brother, you are the hero and heroine in my life. I brought this because I can’t be trusted. This is from Margaret Atwood. “We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories.” Margaret Atwood, this is for you and all of the women who came before you and after you who were brave enough to speak out against intolerance and injustice and to fight for equality and freedom in this world. We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edge of print. We no longer live in the gaps between the stories. We are the story in print, and we were writing the story ourselves. Thank you.
