The most memorable moment of Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards was Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis' heartfelt dedication of the award to the late Heath Ledger. Backstage, Day-Lewis elaborated to the press:
"I suppose that's all I've been thinking about for the last few days. I never met him. I thought he was beautiful. I just have a very strong feeling that I would have liked him very much as a man. I admired him very much."
This proves that not only is Day-Lewis one of the finest actors of our time, he is also one of the classiest.
In related news, Ryan Gosling also paid quiet tribute to his fellow actor at the ceremony.
UPDATE: SAG has posted the complete transcript of Day-Lewis' speech.
