Tomlin started her acceptance speech by providing some advice to other actors which included
Don’t leave the house if you’re drunk, and if you’re out there you must be able to tell when you’ve had too much to drink. Listen to your friends. If your friends are talking to you and about you, saying things like, ‘Did she have a purse? … and mind what Theroux said, ‘Beware of any enterprise that requires new clothing.’ Doesn’t that ring sort of true tonight … at least for some of you?
