Notable Quotes:

Justine Triet (Best Original Screenplay):
​”It will help me through my mid-life crisis.”

Da’vine Joy Randolph (Best Supporting Actress, The Holdovers):
“I didn’t think I was supposed to be doing this as a career…for so long, I’ve always wanted to be different. And now I realize I just need to be myself. And I thank you, I thank people for seeing me. Ron Van Lieu [Yale School of Drama], I’ll thank you when I was the only black girl in that class. When you saw me and you told me ‘I was enough’ and when I told you ‘I don’t see myself’, you said ‘that’s fine’. We’re going to forge our own path. You’re going to lay a trail for yourself. I’m so grateful to all the women who have been by my side…”

Cord Jefferson:
“I understand that this is a risk-averse industry, I get it, but if $200 million movies are also a risk, you know and and it doesn’t always work out, but you take the risk anyway. And instead of making one $200 million movie, try making 20 $10 million movies or 50 $4 million movies… I promise you the next Martin Scorsese, the next Greta’s out here…”
