Quote From the Podium: “Thank you. Thank you very much. When I found out that I’d been nominated for the first ever People’s Choice movie icon award, I decided to look up ‘Icon.’ So here’s what I found: The first definition of an icon is a tiny picture on a computer screen that represents a file. Well, second definition said an icon is an image of someone who is saintly. The third definition said an icon is a person representative of something. Alright, so, if I represent something, here’s what I hope it is:To all of you who were kind enough to vote for me, I hope I represent a working actor who is so incredibly proud to be in this business, humble to be in the company of my nominees, and forever grateful for this honor. Thank you so much.”
