Reactions to the 67th annual Golden Globe Awards, announced Sunday in Beverly Hills, Calif.:
"I am really honestly conflicted about how to have my `happy movie self' in the face of everything that I'm aware of in the real world. And I want to say that that's when I have my mother's voice coming to me, saying, 'Partners in Health, shoot some money to Partners in Health, put the dress on, put on a smile and be damn grateful that you have the dollars to help.'" — Meryl Streep, accepting her award for best actress, musical or comedy, for "Julie & Julia."
"First, let me say, `Thank you, God, for this amazing ride that you're allowing me to go on.'" — Mo'Nique, accepting her award for best supporting actress in a motion picture.
"Our inspiration was all around us: our grandparents, our parents, our wives, our kids, our talking dogs. You guys are not only the source of our greatest material, but you're also the source of our joy and really give meaning to our lives." — Writer and director Peter Doctor, accepting the award for best animated film for "Up".
"I've had the most wonderful time creeping out the entire country for the last six months." — John Lithgow, accepting his award for best supporting actor in a series, miniseries or movie.
"Let's get on with it, before NBC replaces me with Jay Leno." — Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais, closing out his opening monologue.
