Emmys 2020: Mark Ruffalo Makes A Passionate Speech Quoting The Importance of Voting


Playing two people made Mark Ruffalo earn his first acting Emmy. Furthermore, during Sunday’s primetime ceremony, he bagged an award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie. He got so for playing twin brothers Thomas Birdsey and Dominick in HBO’s family saga, I Know This Much Is True.

“It is a great honour to be with these guys, Paul and Hugh and Jeremy. Such wonderful performers this year and beautiful people,” Ruffalo said. He also thanked his cast and crew. He then talked about the show’s meaning and encouraged everyone to vote.

Here’s What He Had to Say

“Our story was about a man, it’s about family. It’s about a man who is battling for his sibling who is living with dysfunctional behavior. It’s a story that is normal all through to the present reality. Also, it poses a major question, how are we going to honor and deal with one another and our most weak people?” he added. “Also, we do that with affection, and we do that with empathy, and by battling for them. Furthermore, that is the thing that we need to do today. We need to meet up with affection, for one another. What’s more, if you are privileged, then fight for the underprivileged.”

“That’s what we’re all going through right now. So go out and vote, formulate a plan, and vote for love, compassion, and kindness. I love you all. Thank you all very much,” he concluded.

Ruffalo’s fellow Lead Actor nominees also consisted of Watchmen‘s Jeremy Irons, Normal People‘s Paul Mescal, Bad Education‘s Hugh Jackman and Hollywood‘s Jeremy Pope.

Furthermore, this marks Ruffalo’s first win as an actor. Also, he took home an Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie for which he was an executive producer.
