During her acceptance speech at the SAG Awards, Ayo Edebiri attempted to quote James Baldwin but humorously admitted to butchering it.

Ayo Edebiri, the breakout star of “The Bear,” captured hearts and headlines with her refreshingly genuine acceptance speech at the 2024 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Winning the accolade for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, Edebiri found herself amidst a moment of vulnerability, attempting to quote James Baldwin, but humorously admitted to butchering it.

“The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light.”

This endearing mishap, far from detracting, only added to the warmth of her gratitude towards her peers, castmates, and the supportive figures in her life. Outshining competitors like Alex Borstein, Rachel Brosnahan, Hannah Waddingham, and Quinta Brunson, Edebiri’s win was a highlight of the evening.
