  • "This means a lot to me. I didnt get the pleasure or honor of meeting Gregory Peck when he was alive, but I did have the pleasure and honor of meeting Veronique Peck, and she said that he appreciated my work. That's all you can hope for. That someone you admire appreciates your work."
.
Congratulations to Laurence Fishburne, our Gregory Peck Award recipient for this evening. Your work has inspired us, and we are so lucky to have you here with us tonight.
