Mark Ruffalo Wins at Golden Globes & Calls For Care Of Earth in Acceptance Speech

Mark Ruffalo has picked up his first Golden Globe award at the 2021 Golden Globes for his dual role as Dominick and Thomas Birdsey in I Know This Much Is True.

The 53-year-old actor accepted his award with his wife Sunrise by his side on Sunday (February 28).

“Thank you for always leading with the idea of humanity, however it comes — beautiful, ugly, inspiring, sad,” Mark shared in his speech, directly thanking director Derek Cianfrance.

His speech also called on others to take care of the Earth.

“It’s my humble belief that what will give all the sadness and loss that we all live through meaning is our common humanity. What connects us is greater than what keeps us apart. And the more we include each other, and see each other and hear each other, the faster we will heal our broken hearts and minds,” he said.

Mark continued, “We have a dying mother, just like the mother in our story. She is Mother Earth. And we must come to balance with her and honor her. And she will heal too. So let’s be courageous together. Let’s turn the page on the cruel past of this nation,” he said. “The good news is inclusion and justice and care for Mother Earth is breaking out everywhere. The godly light of decency is breaking through the hideous, dark storm we’ve been living through.”

This is Mark‘s fourth nomination at the Golden Globes, and his first win.
