Hugh was honored with the Valley Community Clinic Visionary Award on Oct 10th, 2007
"I really am incredibly moved by this. Of course I feel a complete fool standing here before you," Laurie told the crowd at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. "I pretend to be a doctor to pretend patients with pretend illnesses. Here I am being honored by doctors. That seems to me to be ... backward. This feeling of fakeness is all the more acute because I am the son of a doctor."
Laurie, who is British, talked about Britain's national healthcare system, which he said is far from perfect, but he added, "When you are at your weakest, there is someone there to take care of you. It is something. This whole business of healthcare from cradle to grave is so embedded in my bones."

From the Hollywood Reporter:
Medical drama also proved to be a winning prescription for Laurie, who was nominated last year as best actor in a TV drama series for his quirky doctor in "House." This year, he won the SAG Award in the same category on his second try. He couldn't resist responding to Murphy after taking the stage, saying, "I'm British, which accounts for why I'm so smooth." But he also added, "It seems to be that this business, for actors anyway, is not so much about whether or not you do good work -- it's about whether or not you get the chance to do good work."
From the LA Times - excerpt regarding the SAG award trophy:
Rainn Wilson of NBC's "The Office" said he had a closer relationship to the trophy. "I actually modeled for this a few years ago. I was the buttocks model." Laurie, who isn't a doctor but plays one on TV, said he worried that in photos his thumb would appear to be giving his trophy an exam of some sort.
Hugh was a presenter at the Producer's Guild Awards Saturday night. Grey's Anatomy won the episodic television award.
From the LA Times:
"Elizabeth II" was awarded the David L. Wolper Producer of the Year Award in Long Form Television. Suzan Harrison, George Faber, Charles Pattinson and Barney Reisz were presented the award by Hugh Laurie and Calista Flockhart."

"I know everyone says they have a wonderful crew and certainly that can't be the case. We can't all be wonderful. Somebody somewhere is working with a crew of drunken thieves. But it's not me." -- Drama actor winner Hugh Laurie for TV's "House
From the Hollywood Reporter:
"I am speechless. I am literally without a speech," Laurie said in accepting his second consecutive Globe statuette for his role on the Fox medical drama. He hugged Greg Grunberg of NBC's "Heroes," one of the award's presenters and his bandmate in the Band From TV.
To prevent that from happening in the future, Laurie suggested that along with "free shoes and free cuff links and free colonic irrigations," companies should offer award nominees free acceptance speeches, too. "I would love to be able to pull out a speech by Dolce & Gabbana,"cq he said.
Laurie went on to thank "the two people to whom I owe absolutely everything, the two cleverest and funniest and kindest and frankly best bosses that a man can hope to have, ("House" creator) David Shore and (executive producer) Katie Jacobs."
Entertainment Weekly has deemed Hugh the "Wittiest Winner"
"Maybe the Globes honored so many British stars because they can be counted on to give funny speeches. Cleverest was Hugh Laurie's speech accepting his Best Actor in a Drama Series trophy. The House star first quipped that he wished designers would donate speeches to the stars the way they do formalwear. Then he upended the cliché about thanking the crew, saying, ''I know everyone says they have a wonderful crew and logically that can't be the case and they can't all be wonderful. Somebody, somewhere, is working with a crew of drunken thieves.'' No one could have donated that bit; it was pure Laurie."

Hugh's nomination reaction from the Hollywood Reporter:
Hugh Laurie, who was nominated for best actor in a drama series for his role in Fox's "House," said he was "thrilled to bits" about his nomination. "Couldn't be more delighted. I am already planning to arouse comment, perhaps even scandal, with my choice of bow-tie," the British actor joked. He indicated that he was a bit speechless but might look to fellow nominee Kiefer Sutherland, up for his role in Fox's "24," for inspiration. "Oh heck, I don't know. What's a chap supposed to say? Let's find out what Keifer says and try and say it just before him."

''I never believed for one moment that my respect and admiration for television critics could grow ever greater. It has. This is partly because I'm not from these parts. I am from England, as you can probably tell, from the fact that I've just told you. ... The relationship between artist and critic (in England) is very different. Over there, the artist is, if you like, the mouse. And the critic is the vicious sociopath who shatters dreams. It strikes me as a very different setup here and for that, I and everyone else on the show ''House'' is extremely grateful....
''As for this award, a couple of weeks ago I had the good fortune to attend the U.S. Grand Prix in Indianapolis, won, as usual, by Michael Schumacher ... He has been world racing champion, Formula One, for the last seven years. But even his most ardent admirers would have to admit that it's got something to do with the fact that he has the fastest car. Elizabeth Taylor could probably get a podium place. ... People compete with unequal equipment. If, for example, it's a running race and Michael Schumacher began the race with running spikes and the man next to him had lace-up Oxfords, and the man next to him was running in stilettos and the man on the outside lane was wearing a pair of West Highland Terriers. ... But so it is with the business of acting. ... I feel very much in the position of the man who has got a very, very fast car. ... I am, every day that I go to work, deeply sensible of the honor I have to sit at the wheel and drive this wonderful character called House.''

Hugh Laurie, "House" - Winner, Individual Achievement in a Drama
An excerpt from Hugh's speech:
"For most of my career, I have held the belief that television critics are some of the wisest, kindest people,'' he said, getting big laughs. ''I suppose with this you are showing the wisdom of Solomon. Although I know a lot of you thought Solomon was rather two-dimensional. A little generic, you know.
"I should tell you that the last time I won an award for acting, my parents were in the audience. ... I saw their faces as my name was read out and they smiled at each other, a smile of pride, and that stayed with me. To be honest, I didn't give my parents a lot of reasons to be proud, but this was one of them.
''I was 9 years old. And I thought it would be amusing to actually dig out my speech that I delivered on that occasion. I read through it. It turns out to be a lot of rambling about my publicist. Who was also my geography teacher.''
