REGINA KING’S ACCEPTANCE SPEECH:
Amy, thank you for the prayers, sweetheart. Thank you so much. This is so fantastic. Annapurna, thank you so much, everyone. I mean, this is odd, but it’s not. My publicist, Mike Liotta. The Annapurna publicist, Daniella, Jesus, Seth, Marvin, who have been a champion at working their asses off to get people to come see this film. Barry Jenkins, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for your empathy, thank you for telling stories so rich, and thank you for giving us a film that my son said to me when he saw it that it was the first time he really saw himself. Thank you so much for that. Blan B, Jeremy, and DeeDee, oh, my gosh. What a journey it’s been from all the way from “Year of the Dog” to here. Jesus, man. Oh my gosh, my son, Ian. Boy, man. Thank you so much for all of the love that we have been receiving for “Beale Street.” We are so proud of this film. The Baldwin family, thank you so much for trusting Sir Barry Jenkins to tell James Baldwin’s words and allowing us the opportunity. Thank you, God, for allowing me to be a witness. Hollywood Foreign Press Association, okay. Cheers, cheers.
Oh, my gosh, one more thing. So often everyone out there, they hear us on the red carpet, and they say, celebrities, we are using the time to talk about ourselves when we are on our soapbox and using a moment to talk about the systemic things that are going on in life. Times up times two, the reason why we do this is because we understand that our microphones are big and we are speaking for everyone. And I just want to say that I’m going to use my platform right now to say, in the next two years, everything that I produce, I am making a vow ‑‑ and it’s going to be tough ‑‑ to make sure that everything that I produce, that it is 50 percent women. And I just challenge anyone out there who anyone out there who is in a position of power ‑‑ not just in our industry, in all industries ‑‑ I challenge you to challenge yourselves and stand with us in solidarity and do the same. God bless you. Thank you.

GREEN BOOK
Universal Pictures
In 1962, Tony “Tony Lip” Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work with his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America’s racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals. However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America’s appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other’s talents and heart to face them together. In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.
Directed by: Peter Farrelly
Written By: Nick Vallelonga, Brian Hayes Currie
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali
