(crowd applauds)

> ANNOUNCER: PLEASE WELCOME
YOUR HOST, FRED WILLARD.

> THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
THANK YOU.
TONIGHT WE HONOR A GROUP OF
PEOPLE WHO ARE STRONG
RESILIENT, AND WHO ARE FINALLY
GIVING OPPORTUNITIES IN
A TOWN THAT HAS LONG
SHUT THEM OUT.I'M OF
COURSE TALKING
ABOUT MEN IN FILM.
(crowd applauds)
YES WE'VE HAD SOME SERIOUS SET
BACKS THIS YEAR. WE MEN
ONLY COMPRISE A DISCOURAGING
% PERCENT OF ALL CINEMATOGRAPHERS.
A DEPRESSING 85% OF OF
ALL WRITERS, AND A COMPLETELY
DISHEARTENING, 91% OF
DIRECTORS. AS THESE NUMBERS
PROVE, WE ARE
COMPLETELY INVISIBLE.
(crowd lets out a sigh)
BUT WE STAYED STRONG IN
THE FACE OF ADVERSITY, AND
FINALLY HAVE SOME NEWS
TO CELEBRATE. THIS YEAR, 100%
PERCENT OF ALL SUMMER
BLOCKBUSTERS WERE HELMED
BY MEN. A RARE FEAT THAT'S
ONLY HAPPENED 80 OTHER TIMES.
(crowd applauds)
AND YES, IT'S A YEAR WHERE
WE ARE GETTING THE BREAKS
THAT HAVE ALLUDED US
SINCE 2010, THE DARK YEAR.
WHEN KATHRYN BIGELOW
TOOK HOME...
WELL WE ALL KNOW
WHAT SHE TOOK HOME.
(someone in the crowd boos)
TRUTH BE TOLD I LOOK
FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN
MEN DON'T NEED
TO BE RECOGNIZED.
(crowd applauds)
A DAY WHEN THE WORLD
WILL FINALLY
UNDERSTAND THAT WE MEN
CAN DO ANYTHING WOMAN CAN DO.
AND AS FRED ASTAIRE PUT IT,
WHILE FACING FORWARD,
AND WITHOUT WEARING
EXTRAORDINARY UNCOMFORTABLE
SHOES, AND NONE OF THIS
WOULD'VE BEEN POSSIBLE
WITHOUT THE
HELP OF GOD.
MAN, NUMBER ONE.
