SAG Awards: Mark Ruffalo & Michael Keaton's 'Spotlight' Acceptance Speech

Open Road’s Spotlight won the marquee Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture honor tonight at the SAG Awards. The win gives solid Oscar Best Picture momentum to the the pic, which centers on the Boston Globe‘s Pulitzer-winning investigation into the Catholic Church child abuse scandal in Boston. The ensemble cast features Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber, Brian d’Arcy James, John Slattery, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup.

Ruffalo, who’s up for a Supporting Oscar with McAdams, and Keaton did the speaking honors tonight after their win.

  1. I can’t believe anyone is even comparing this move to THE BIG SHORT. The Big Short is a comedy that is fast food. Totally entertaining though not enduring. Spotlight is making a difference. Saving lives. And a better movie. I hope it wins the Oscar.

  2. Why didn’t they thank the Boston Globe reporters, without whom there would have been no story and no movie?

  3. Great speech. Excellent ensemble from top to bottom. Every single role, down to smallest part, was perfectly cast.

  4. THANK YOU .. Spotlight cast members…

    Silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.

  5. Spotlight will win most of the awards that it is nominated for, because it is powerful enough to literally change the religion of tens of millions of people.

    No other movie in history did that, and Hollywood will acknowledge it’s power, rewarding itself, as it should.

    This movie will have a more dramatic impact on people’s lives than any movie ever made, and Hollywood doesn’t want to be remembered as the institution that didn’t understand that.
