Thank you Blake and my three daughters. Soon it will be a fourth child. Blake and my girls you are literally my heart, hope and happiness. I joke that my family wears me out, but you give me more strength than any man can earn,” Reynolds said, choking a little.

Reynolds began his speech jokingly, “I feel like I’m at my funeral, but I’m allowed to leave.” I think I finally tested positive for icon. I’ve avoided it for years, but here we are.’

Three Families: He thanked his three families during his speech – his original family, including his parents and siblings, his working family at his production company Maximum Effort, and his “family family,” wife Blake Lively and their three children, with one more in the way

“The one thing you get when you get a trophy like that, you don’t get one without a lot of help from a lot of real icons and people who don’t always put their iconic energy in front of the camera. Over the course of this long career, there are literally far too many people to list, but I wouldn’t fail to mention that it starts with my family and ends with my family,” he said to audience applause.

‘To my mother, three brothers, one of whom is sitting there, and to my father who left us a few years ago. If you could see all the things that are going on, he’d be impressed, but you’d be amazed by his three little granddaughters,” Reynolds said to applause.

“Wherever he is right now, I promise you he’s probably not watching the People’s Choice Awards. He cultivated most of his opinions through old episodes of Baywatch, so he probably does, I’m guessing,” Reynolds joked.

“Maximum Effort and I have been fortunate enough to create two organizations with tremendous access and opportunity for communities that have been discriminated against, overlooked or marginalized,” he added to the applause.

“If you could support them, great. If you want to get into these industries then join us, whether or not one of these fancy icon awards waiting for you, working in these fields is a daily challenge and joy and they bring people together. The best people I know have been brought together by these organizations in the world can certainly use a lot more togetherness right now, so thank you for this award,” Reynolds concluded.
