"We want to tell stories that reflect our lives back at us". We are the story in print.
In the current era of so-called prestige TV, it's tougher than ever for network dramas to elbow their way into award season. This Is Us is the rare exception, as it was nominated for three Golden Globes this year.
The creator of The Handmaid's Tale ended his speech on a somber note after the dystopian series about women forced into pregnancies under a totalitarian Christian state won Best Drama Series at the Golden Globes Jan. 7.
Moss accepted the award with a quote from "The Handmaid's Tale" by Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
This is from Margaret Atwood: "We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the gaps between the stories". We no longer live in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. "And we are writing them ourselves".
Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television: Yes, this should be an easy win for Nicole Kidman, who already has the Emmy for her performance in "Big Little Lies". That went to Laura Dern, who capped off a big year be being recognized for her role as Renata Klein in Big Little Lies. It was a culture of silencing and that was normalized.
"To my team, you know who you are and I love you".
The handmaids also shared images on their Twitter account showcasing each of them standing by a sign that reads "Silent No Longer". May we teach our children that speaking out without the fear of retribution is our culture's new North Star. All the people who support me and my handsome children, thank you for all of your work and love.
"And I think that that is, for me, one of the kind of incredible things that has come out of this show is I actually really believe in what we're saying on the show". Trust me, the women in this room tonight are not here for the food.
In his win for acting on the Alberta-shot series "Fargo", Ewan McGregor mentioned how they had "an incredible crew" in Calgary.
I would like to thank our producers, Douglas Sibanski, Tim Bevin, Lisa Bruce and Antony McCarton.
"I brought this [gestures to her notes] because I can't be trusted".
