Allison Janney presented the award during the ceremony.

“Thank you so much for this award. Thank you to everybody here and everyone that voted. Not just because you voted for me — because that would make me an insane narcissist — because it was so overwhelming and incredibly sweet of all of you,” she said during her speech.

“I’m thankful to you because you’ve actually engaged and you cared about things. Movies and music and people in the world around you and you took the time and put the effort in to have your voice be heard and that is tremendously inspiring to me,” she said.

“If you could just do one more thing with your power, because when people come together there’s such incredible power in it, please, keep the victims, volunteers and firefighters in your thoughts and any contributions to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation- $1, $10, 50 cents — it will be put to good use and it will make a difference. There is great power in this room and everyone who’s watching.”
