“Oh my God, all that and kissed by Jeremy Irons!! Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press, thank you so much. Here in Southern California, the home of my mother, her mother, her mother before her — look Mom, I got a Golden Globe! … My managers and my agent told me, ‘You gotta go meet David O. Russell on this film,’ and I said, ‘Well I’d like to go meet David O. Russell, but I don’t know if I could play Mark and Christian’s mother; I’m a little young.’ [laughter] Thank God I went to the meeting! David grabbed me into the film, and the idea that I could be his Alice. I am forever grateful for that, David. Those few hours we spent in the Maritime Hotel; forever, thank you. [laughter] No! No, no, no, you don’t know what kinda girl I am; it’s all work, man. [more laughter] … thank you so much Mark, thank you Christian, thank you sweet Amy … and all the women recognized tonight … thank you so very much, this is thrilling; I’m beside myself … WOO-HOO!” 

— Melissa Leo, accepting her award for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture at the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards
