Quotes from Sunday night’s 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles:

“If people are saying I’m the front-runner, that’s a beautiful thing. It’s more attention for the movie. I’m delighted to be the front-runner, may it all happen.” — J.K. Simmons backstage on his status as the favorite to win the supporting-actor Oscar for “Whiplash.”


“Twenty-eight. I had just gotten out of Julliard and thought I could conquer the world. I didn’t know better. I didn’t know life was going to be hard yet. I liked bathing in that ignorance.” — Viola Davis backstage on what age she would choose to stay.


“She has been more than a mother to me, not much, but definitely more.” — Carrie Fisher, presenting the lifetime achievement award to her mother Debbie Reynolds.


“I can’t tell you what this means to me. I’m a fourth-generation actor. My family has been committed to acting for over a century, through feast or famine.” — Patricia Arquette, supporting actress winner for “Boyhood.”


“When I was 17 I decided I wanted to be an actor. … I want to say to all you kids in the drama club, you kids are the real actors.” — Julianne Moore, leading actress winner for “Still Alice.”


“It’s all a bit overwhelming. It’s like a white noise of euphoria. It’s a very wondrous sensation.” — Eddie Redmayne, leading actor winner for “The Theory of Everything.”


“Actors love this movie for showing the courage actors have to kind of go out there and lay it on the line.” — Michael Keaton, who shared the cast in a motion picture award for “Birdman.”
