The Peak's pick of noteworthy quotes from the Oscars 2018.
"But what happened to Harvey and what's happening all over is long overdue. We can't let bad behaviour slide anymore, the world is watching us. We need to set an example and the truth is, if we are successful here, if we can work together to stop sexual harassment in the work place, if we can do that, women will only have to deal with harassment all the time at every other place they go."
"We don’t make films like 'Call Me By Your Name' for money, we make it to upset Mike Pence."
"We will always remember this year as the year men screwed up so badly, women started dating fish.”
"To those who say that we’re all a bunch of out-of-touch Hollywood elites, I’ll have you know that each of the 45 million Swarovski crystals on this stage tonight represents humility."
“We live in a time where now, more than ever, everyone needs to understand the importance of what is real, what is authentic and fact.”
“Marginalised people deserve to feel like they belong. Representation matters.”
07: "I may be so honoured to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight. The actors... Meryl (Streep) if you'll do it, everybody else will, come on. The filmmakers, the producers, the directors, the writers, the cinematographer, the composers, the song writers, the designers... come on. Okay, look around everybody, look around ladies and gentlemen. Because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed."
08: "Some of my favourite movies are movies by straight white dudes about straight white dudes. Now straight white dudes can watch movies starring me and you relate to that. It's not that hard. I've done it my whole life."
09: "Our movie is about a deaf child being born into a world of silence. It’s not exaggerated or sensationalised for the movie. This is happening - millions of children all over the world live in silence and face communication barriers, in particularly access to education."
10: "Get ready for some more 'Get Out's. For some more 'Black Panther's. Get ready for some more 'Wrinkle in Time's. We're here, and we're not going anywhere."
