President Donald Trump’s temporary ban of citizens of Muslim-majority countries entering the U.S. was a focal point of the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday night. The 2017 show, held live at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, saw several political statements from celebrities in attendance.

“Good evening fellow SAG-AFTRA members and everyone at home and everyone in airports that belong in my America. You are apart of the fabric of who we are and we love you and we welcome you. We also welcome you to the 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.” - Ashton Kutcher, opening remarks

“Whether the Russians did or did not hack the voting of tonight’s SAG Awards I look out on the million or probably even a million and half people in this room and I say, ‘I won. I’m the winner. The winner is me. Landslide!’ ... I am the daughter of an immigrant. My father fled religious persecution in Nazi occupied France. I’m 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.” - Julia Louis Dreyfus, accepting female actor in a comedy series

“I would like to go against the strain this evening and thank President Trump for making Frank Gallagher seem so normal.” - William H. Macy, accepting male actor in a comedy series

“We stand up representing a diverse group of people, representing generations of families who have sought a better life here. From places like Nigeria to Dominican Republic to Puerto Rico, Columbia, Ireland. We know that it’s going to be up to us and all of you to keep telling stories to show what unites us is stronger than the forces that seek to divide us.” - Taylor Schilling, accepting outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series

“... When we get caught up in the minutia, the details that make us all different, I think there’s two ways of seeing that: there’s opportunity to see the texture of that person, the characteristics that make them unique, and then there’s an opportunity to go war about it and say that that person’s different from you, ‘I don’t like you so let’s battle.’ My mother is ordained minister and I’m a Muslim. She didn’t do backflips when I called to tell her I converted 17 years ago. We put things to the side and I’m able to see her and she’s able to see me... that stuff is minutia. It’s not that important.” - Mahershala Ali, accepting male actor in a supporting role

“Any money they have to spare please donate to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) to protect the rights and liberties of the people across this country.” - Sarah Paulson, accepting female actor in a TV movie or limited series

“I’m often asked what would Lyndon Johnson think about Donald Trump. I honestly feel that 36 would put his arm around 45 and earnestly wish him success. He would also whisper in his ear and 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.’” - Bryan Cranston, accepting for male actor in a TV movie or limited series

“The doomsday clock has been moved up to 2 and a half minutes before midnight. This award, it came just in the knick of time!” - Lily Tomlin, accepting lifetime achievement award

“The SAG Awards: actors honoring actors. In that spirit, I would like to honor Sterling [K. Brown], Peter [Dinklage], Rami [Malek] and Kevin [Spacey]. And, also, a great and underrated actress who somehow managed to speak my exact thoughts three weeks ago at another award ceremony and that’s Meryl Streep.” - John Lithgow, referencing Streep’s slam on Trump during the Golden Globes, accepting male actor in a drama series

“A nation under the thumb of monocracy, an aristocrat on the verge of bankruptcy forced to downsize, good vs evil, sex and violence, life in medieval times, a return to the 1980s and a world upside down, outlaw robots running rampant without fear of retribution, these are all headlines we read this morning.” - Rashida Jones and Riz Ahmed reading the nominees for outstanding ensemble in a drama series

“... We are united in that we are all human beings in this painful, joyous, exiting and mysterious ride that is being alive. We will shelter freaks and outcasts, those who have no home. We will get past the lies. We will hunt monsters and when we are at a lost admit the hypocrisy and casual violence of certain individuals and institutions we will, as per Chief Jim Hopper, punch some people in the face when the seek to destroy.” - David K. Harbor, accepting win for “Stranger Things” in outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series

“This story is of unity. This story is about what happens when we put our differences aside and we come together as a human race. We win. Love wins every time.” Taraji P. Henson accepting for “Hidden Figures” outstanding performance by a cast in a theatrical motion picture win

“We’re in a really tricky time in the world and in our country and things are every inexcusable and scary and need action and I’m so grateful to be part of a people that cares and that wants to reflect things back to society.” Emma Stone, accepting for actress in a leading role
