‘There’s no crying in baseball’ – Emotional Speech by Ryan Reynolds while accepting Critics Choice Award


I genuinely was not expecting this, I prepared nothing. So, I’m just going to focus on Tom Hanks.

No really though, you’re a huge influence on me. My two-year-old daughter – the first full sentence she ever said was, ‘There’s no crying in baseball.’ I’m not even kidding.’

It’s a hugely undervalued asset in Hollywood: they’re architects, they make us look good, often times their jobs are very hard.

They’re alone in rooms in their underwear, weeping softly with their tears working as lube for their old fashioned typewriter machine. So I accept this on the screenwriters behalf.

I want to thank my wife, and for no reason at all, I suppose my children.
