Meryl Streep & Emma Thompson about working with Stephen Sondheim
"Those ‘Go-away, I need you,’ ‘Come to me, I’ll kill you,’
'Darling, I'll do anything to keep you here with me 'til you tell me that you love me, oh you did, now beat it, will you?' blues.”
OMGGG. PLEASE, SHOOT ME IN THE FACE.
Please, you have to forgive me. I have no other choice.

I don’t really know how to thank the Academy for this. And if I try we’ll be here till Christmas, so I better get on. Before I came I went to visit Jane Austen’s grave in Winchester Cathedral to pay my respects, you know, and to tell her about the grosses. And I don’t know how she would react to an evening like this but I do hope, I do hope she knows how big she is in Uruguay. Profound thanks to Columbia Pictures and the lovely forms of Lisa Henson, Gareth Wigan, and Mark Canton for hiring a first-time writer. To James Schamus, for his rare intelligence. And to Sydney Pollack, for asking all the right questions like, why couldn’t these women go out and get a job? Why, indeed! And to the cast and crew, for being impeccable. To my friend and my teacher, Lindsay Doran, for being the single, most frustrating reason why I can’t claim all the credit for myself. And finally I would like, with your permission, to dedicate this Oscar to our director Ang Lee. Ang, wherever you are, this is for you.
I’m thinking it’s from the late 80s-90s.
