“I really didn’t think I was going to win,” said an emotional Maurice Benard (Sonny). “Such great competition…. I can’t cry up here, man. I don’t have a speech so I’m just going to wing it. I think the big star here is the Alzheimer’s story. It wasn’t acting; it was just living it because Max [Gail, Mike] reminded me so much of my father…. we were just in there in a story that touches so many people in the world.”
