"Good evening everyone and welcome to the most glamorous and exciting evening in the history of the world." — Steve Carell, introducing Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards.

"When someone asked the great character actor Sir Ralph Richardson how he did what he did at age 83, he replied, 'I don't know, I'm just getting the hang of it.' And that's how I feel. I'm just getting the hang of it." — Charles Durning, accepting the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award.

"It's been a dream come true. A dream that began when I watched the movies of the great character actors of my time. Actors like Claude Raines, Lee J. Cobb, Frank Morgan and King Kong." — Durning, reflecting on his long acting career.

"Thank you, guys, for hiring me and thank you for taking the hard work of choosing the good takes instead of the ones where I really sucked." Javier Bardem, thanking his directors, the Coen brothers, while accepting the SAG Award for supporting actor in a movie.

"To be here with so many people I admire and respect, it's so humbling." Ellen Page, nominated for best actress for the teen pregnancy comedy "Juno."

"If you've seen me on the show with Alec Baldwin, then you know it's sort of like watching Fred Astaire dance with a hat rack and after a while you're like, 'Oh, that hat rack is pretty good too.' And you've given an award to the hat rack and I thank you." — Tina Fey accepting the award for female actor in a comedy series.

"I remember from last year that when I went back to work I couldn't extend my biceps." Jenna Fischer, who shared an award for comedy series cast for "The Office," commenting on the heft of the Screen Actors Guild award, which weighs in at more than 20 pounds.
