"The people you see on stage, we had more than a hundred and fifty actors. They spoke in English, they spoke in Farsi, and the one thing that they had in common was that they came to work every single day, whether they had a line or a look to somebody, or two lines or 10 lines, or a bunch of stuff I couldn’t understand in Farsi, and they wanted to 'kill' it to make the movie better.
Because that’s what actors do all over the world, every day.”
— Ben Affleck, on behalf of the cast of "Argo," Cast in a Motion Picture
“And now I have this naked statue that means that some of you even voted for me. And that is an undescribable feeling. Thank you. And I want to thank David. You made a movie for your son, so that he wouldn’t feel alone and so that he could feel understood. And I think I can speak on behalf of most of us in saying that you helped more than your son. You’ve helped so many sons and daughters and…cousins, wives, everybody.”
— Jennifer Lawrence, Female Actor in a Leading Role
