Following the Friday announcement of Donald Trump's immigration ban, and the weekend of nationwide protests that followed, it was inevitable that the Screen Actors Guild awards would be more political than usual.
Winners and presenteres throughout the night, from Ashton Kutcher to Mahershala Ali to Julia Louis-Dreyfus, used their platform to denounce Trump's "extreme vetting" measures, pledge their support to refugees and make pleas for more tolerance and compassion. Here's a roundup of all the celebrities who made reference to Trump and his Muslim ban throughout the night:
Kutcher began the ceremony by addressing "everyone in airports that belong in my America. You are the part of the fabric of who we are, and we love you and we welcome you."
Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
"I want you all to know that I am the daughter of an immigrant. My father fled religious persecution in Nazi-occupied France, and I am an American patriot, and I love this country, and because I love this country I am horrified by its blemishes. This immigrant ban is a blemish, and it is un-American."
Taylor Schilling (Orange Is The New Black)
We [the show's ensemble] stand up here representing a diverse group of people, representing generations of families who have sought a better life here, from places like Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Columbia, Ireland… And we know that it's going to be up to us, and all of you, to keep telling stories that show that what unites us is stronger than the forces that seek to divide us."
Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
"I think what I've learned from working on Moonlight is we see what happens when we persecute people," Ali began. "They fold into themselves, and what I was so grateful about in having the opportunity to play [his] Juan was playing a gentleman. Who saw a young man folding into himself as the result of the persecution of his community, and taking the opportunity to uplift him, tell him that he mattered, that he was okay, accept him and I hope that we do a better job of that.
"When we get caught up in the minutiae, the details that make us all different, there's two ways of seeing that. You can see the texture of that person, the qualities that make them unique, or you can go to war about it, say, 'That person is different from me, I don't like you, so let's battle.' My mother is an ordained minister, I'm a Muslim. She didn't do backflips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. But I tell you now, we put things to the side, I'm able to see her, she's able to see me, we love each other, the love has grown. That stuff is minutiae. It's not that important."
Sarah Paulson (The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story)
"I would like to make a plea: Any money you have to spare, please donate to the ACLU, to protect the rights and liberties of people across this country. It's a vital organization that relies on our support, so please, if you can."
Bryan Cranston (All The Way)
"I'm often asked, how would Lyndon Johnson think about Donald Trump? I honestly feel that 36 would put his arm around 45 and earnestly wish him success. And he would also whisper in his ear something he said often, as a form of encouragement, and a cautionary tale—'Just don't piss in the soup that all of us gotta eat'."
