"I'm the guy up here holding this [award,] but I really feel like I'm representing a cast and crew of 450 people, who worked on this thing, gave everything of themselves all these years during this production," Linklater said.

"I'm the only nerd with a piece of paper," Arquette joked as she thanked her collaborators, peers, family and fellow nominees.

Addressing Into the Woods star Meryl Streep, she said: "Meryl, thank you for giving me a hug. I hope your DNA transferred."

Julianne Moore scored the Best Actress in a Drama Film honor for her performance in Still Alice.

"Oh, my goodness! Oh, my goodness! Thank you so much!" Moore exclaimed, appearing to laugh and cry at the same time. "When Lisa Genova wrote this book, she told me that no one wanted to make it into a movie because nobody wanted to see a movie about a middle-aged woman, so I want to thank the people who actually made the movie."

Eddie Redmayne took home the statuette for Best Actor in a Drama Film for his work in The Theory of Everything.

"What an extraordinary thing," Redmayne marveled.

"It is a great privilege for me to be in this room," he added. "This was a huge privilege. Stephen, Jane, Jonathan and the Hawking family allowed us into their lives and trusted us with their story and getting to spend time with Stephen Hawking who, despite all of the obstacles put in his way, has lived passionately and fully and with great humor was one of the great, great honors of my life."
