LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Notable quotes from the Screen Actors Guild Awards, presented Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles:

- "It's amazing to see a group of women together in any media situation who aren't talking about how big their butts are." - "Orange is the New Black" star Lea DeLaria on the red carpet.

- "Always take a nap at lunch." - Lead actress winner Brie Larson on the best advice she ever received.

- "I would first like to thank our creator - no, not that one. The one grounded here on earth." - Kevin Spacey, winner for TV actors in a drama, expressing gratitude toward "House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon.

- "Please continue to have some damn sense. Do what's right for the people. And climate change is a real thing." - Queen Latifah, winner for her role in "Bessie," on what she'd tell the next U.S. president.
