“But what has remained the same for every person who is lucky enough to be on television is the belief that we’ve been given an opportunity to do something special. We’ve been granted a gift, a [canvas] to paint with our talent, one that can make people laugh or cry or maybe do both.
So this award, oh, my gosh, so generously named after me, is dedicated to all those who made my dreams come true and to all those out there who share the love I have for television, and we yearn to be part of this unique medium that has been so good to me. I’m just happy our show happened when it did and that I can look back and say once more, ‘I am so glad we had this time together.’ Thank you.”
