Barbra joked that this was “such a wonderful award to get because you know in advance you’re going to get it,” adding, “You don’t have to sit here and squirm.”

She recalled her longtime dreams of making it in the industry, saying, “I wanted to be in the movies, even though I knew I didn’t look like any of the other women on the screen. My mother said, ‘You better learn to type,’ but I didn’t listen. And somehow, someway — thank you, God — it all came true,” via People.

After celebrating her membership in SAG-AFTRA for 60 years, Barbra paid tribute to her peers in her conclusion: “And most of all, I want to thank you for giving me so much joy just watching all of you on the screen. Thank you for that.”
