Sending my love to Australia all the people and animals affected by the devastating fires, Ellen continued, with the desire to humor her grateful speech. “What I most liked in this is the fact that I knew I will win,” jokingly she said, explaining why she likes to a specific prize Carol Burnett. Then she thanked Carol Burnett, which is named the bounty, and made sure to make another joke.
“I feel that there is a connection, when we watch someone on TV, and that’s what happened to me with Carol Burnett” she began. “I felt I knew her, I felt that she showed us who she was every week she was larger than life. We were hoping that it will make us feel good, and it gives us pleasure every week, and never failed us. She was cheerful in all his broadcasts, and when she did questions and answers with the audience, she was sincere and personal and I always felt that she was talking to me. At the end of the show, each time she would pull my ear, I knew what she was saying: “All right, I’m also gay.”
After the laughter from the audience, Ellen ended her speech by sharing his favorite part about what she does. “All I ever wanted to do is make people feel good and laugh, and there is no greater feeling than when someone tells me I made their day better with my show or that I helped them through an illness or difficult time in their life,” she explained. “The real power of television for me — not people who just watch my show and people who watch my show, and then they are inspired to go out and do the same in your life. They make people laugh or to be kind or to help someone less fortunate than themselves, and that is the power of television, and I’m so glad to be a part of it.”
