"Thanks for this. It made me think about the time my dad saw Dr. Strangelove in a theatre in Japan. He was the only person laughing. Different communities can have such opposite reactions to the same movie. This is something I love about movies, and also why they're so important. Movies really do help us see and understand others' experiences, often even better than news report/footage." - Cash

Meryl: I said no to that role you wanted so badly.
Glenn (misty-eyed): Oh Meryl...

I know you have three Oscars Meryl to my none. You tell me every time we're in a public place! If these photographers weren't here my hands would be wringing your neck instead of on your shoulders!!

Meryl: Work done? I've had no work done. You don't need work done when you have an Oscar (or three). However you darling.......I hear there is a wizard up on 63rd. Ask Weaver for his number.

March 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

Meryl: You should learn not to compete with me. I always win!
Glenn: You may have always won, but you never played fair!
Meryl: Who cares how I played? I won!

Meryl: Andrew L. Webber just called me, I´m gonna do the musical adaptation of Sunset Boulevard!
Glenn: Not only another Broadway adaptation, but the one I actually starred in the 90´s! let...me...hug...you... (her voice softs and her hands are now around Meryl´s throat...)

Meryl: "I was considering withdrawing my name for Into the Woods, The Homesman and The Giver. Maybe even for The Suffragette. What do you think?"
Glenn: *internally screaming yes*

Glenn: Sweetheart, you know you're not going to win tonight, right?
Meryl: Darling, you know you're not going to win EVER, right?
Glenn: I hate you.
Meryl: I feel indifferent towards towards you.
Glenn: Want to get dinner afterwards?
Meryl: Only if we get to talk shit about Harvey Weinstein.
Glenn: Of course!

Glenn: shouldn't we make The House of the Spirits part two? I smell Oscar!

March 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPedro

Meryl: How was working with (lightning crackle ready voice) James Gunn?
Glenn: It was good. Connery play. Y'know, won for The Untouchables?
Meryl: Does that really happen to women?
Glenn: If they're six time nominees beforehand? Sure. Marvel Studios has the momentum for Top Ten Best Picture heat, and there's a first time for everything.

March 6, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterVolvagia

Glenn: So, you're supposed to win your 4 Oscar tonight?

March 6, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterpar

You know Meryl, you have no chance against Cate tonight. That'll make you a 15 time loser. How are the rest of us supposed to catch up to you?

March 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJones

M: I don't know why you've never won, Glenn. You're every inch as good as Reese Witherspoon in some of the things you've done.

March 7, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJames T

Meryl: Darling, did you REALLY think you would win for Albert Nobbs?
Glenn: Umn.... yes?

Glenn: People think I'll never win....
Meryl: Hush, there's still Geraldine Page and Jessica Tandy. You only loose if you give up. Never, never NEVER give up! I know what I'm talking about.

Glenn: People think I'll never win...
Meryl: Go find Leo.
