Robert Pattinson at the HFPA 2017 Grants Banquet ¬

Transcript:

Meher Tatna (President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, HFPA) :

“ Before we have dinner I would like to give you a little idea of what’s to come, starting at eight o’clock. We are an association of journalists. We were all inspired by Meryl Streep’s during speech at the Globes earlier this year...and that gave us an idea. To tell you about it, here is the star of Good Time, Robert Pattinson.”

Robert Pattinson:

“For years the HFPA has not only supported film, theatre and education related schools, programs and charities, but responded to a number of humanitarian crises throughout the world, including the aftermath of typhoon in the Philippines, tsunami in Thailand, and Hurricane Sandy on America’s east coast. Rarely does an ongoing crisis hit home, as much for the members of the HFPA as is the case, an unfortunate new development has taken root all over the world: The slow disintegration and disappearance of what Americans call the First Amendment Right. Freedom of speech is under attack in many countries, journalists at the fear of incarceration or worse, for reporting the truth. An alarming number of journalists killed each year, most of their murders going unpunished, including in established democracies. Committee to Protect Journalists seeks to address this, whilst they influence policy and ensures that justice prevails. Therefore this year the HFPA aims at a $200,000 donation to the Committee to Protect Journalists…Often called journalism’s Red Cross which promotes press freedom and defends the rights of journlists around the world for reporting news without fear of reprisal. I’m very honored to accept this grant on behalf of this worthwhile organization. Thank you.”

To watch or read Meryl Streep’s speech at the Golden Globes this year *in January
