Journalist: 'What do awards mean to you? I mean, do they have some special significance to you?
MP: *big sigh* Well, that's a really complicated question. I think that it's real nice to have your work acknowledged, no matter what field you're in. I think it makes everyone feel real good.
I always wondered how important awards were to her. This is the exact response I thought she'd give. But I was still saddened. You could see how proud and happy she was with that GG standing next to her. Her face was all glowing and she was smiling. It sucks that that was the first and only time she got to hold a GG. I swear, I welled up. I got seriously struck by the Susie-syndrome.
The only thing that relieved the pain a little was that she said nominations and winning are equal to her. If that's the case then her losing that Oscar to Jessica Tandy isn't horrible, ok, it sucks less. Because if she's happy, I'm happy :)
I do hope she'll at least get nominated again. If she ever goes to work again :(
