He comically started his speech saying his publicist told him he is receiving an award and he simply replied he is in for it, which later turned emotional as he spoke about River Phoenix. He talked about people who had a profound influence on his career. Soon, he recalled an incident from when he was 15 or 16, and River made him watch the movie, Raging Bull. “You’re gonna start acting again. He didn’t ask me, he told me,” said Joaquin Phoenix as he remembered his brother being the one to push him into acting again gently.
