Watch Matt Damon’s heartfelt 2016 Golden Globes speech — and his Globes speech 18 years ago

“It’s literally been 18 years since I’ve been here doing this.’’

Matt Damon took home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy last night for his performance as stranded astronaut Mark Watney in The Martian. He thanked the usual people — his wife, his kids, Martian director Ridley Scott — but he also mused on what it was like when he won his first Golden Globe 18 years ago for Good Will Hunting.

“I was here 18 years ago — it’s literally been 18 years since I’ve been here doing this,’’ Damon said. “I know how lucky I am to do this for a living.’’

For comparison, here’s Damon and Ben Affleck as a pair of twentysomething newcomers accepting the Golden Globe for Best Original Screenplay in 1998.
