— Ryan Murphy, accepting the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie for The Normal Heart. The director called out the play’s author, who, although noticeably frail, gleefully took the stage with the rest of the HBO-produced movie’s cast and producers. “We’re only here because of one person, and that’s Mr. Larry Kramer,” said Murphy. “We did this for him.” Murphy then asked for “young people watching to become Larry Kramers, to find a cause you believe in, that you will fight for, that you will die for.”
