a toast to sofia

Sofia recieved the Special Achievement Award from The National Board of Review, such a honor! Bill Murray was the one who gave her the award and this is his amazing, touching speech:

Bill Murray: “I want the best for her because she’s a lady. She acts like a lady, the women in her movies are ladies, they have strength and power and they’re strong. Even the pole dancers in this latest movie have enough of themselves to call the lead actor a moron. As all you women should call your men this evening, I think, pole or not. So we’ll give her a boost to say, go on, you’ve made it this far, push her out into the deep water, push her out into bigger and deeper films, more and more films. She has a beautiful eye. She has great taste in the people she chooses to work with. She’s a kind and thoughtful director and editor and producer. She’s all the things that we hoped we could be when we were like this. She’s been lucky so far, and she’s been strong so far. Let’s keep her going. I appreciate your asking her to receive this award for filmmaking achievement. Ms. Ms. Ms. Sofia Coppola.”

    some days ago we were speaking at school about sofia coppola (I don't know why) and it reminded me of this blog hahaha

  3. She was gorgeous! I'm loving all her dress choices in the last events, she has an extraordinary elegance. And Murray's speech was heart-melting, I'm in love with everything he said... he was so right, and it was really cute and funny what he said about Thomas and everything about Sofia's films. Amazing speech ;)
