Marlo Thomas presents the award
Paul and David head onto the stage with big grins.
DS:(leaning over to kiss Marlo Thomas) I always wanted to do that,.. kiss the girl. (his shy adorable smile appears) This is really lovely....
PMG: Certainly is.
DS: "I guess, ah, I just want to say that I think the American people have seen this show Paul, I think, ah, in a way that maybe is not played too much press wise and I think they see a relationship between two men who could be anything and I think in accepting that,ah,ah, and then giving us this award makes me feel really good about it because I don't think that there are many relationships that are exposed that way. (David looks suddenly shy as Paul, with a big smile, reaches up and touches David's cheek)
DS:You know what I mean (DS with anervous giggle, looking suddenly shy). I mean that (alot of applause.) PMG:I'm trying to get my heart from going too fast here (he wipes a tear away). I always say to myself... if it happens, I'm gonna get up here and talk real slow and take a look around and see the people.
DS: It's hard.
PMG: Ah, ya, it's hard (DS laughs shyly). I'd like to say ah,ah, I agree with you whole heartedly and to the people, our thanks for voting this award, um, I think its also a nice time to say that with people like Arron Spelling, Leonard Goldberg, and Joseph Naar our producer, Michael Fisher our writer and our crew, all of it wouldn't be possible. They have to put up with our insanity. (Paul looks at David) There is one person (DS laughs) of course,ah, that I'd like to thank, tremendously for all the support and all the, ah, strength and being there when I needed him and (Paul points to David) thats this blonde turkey on my right. (Paul turns to shake his hand). Thank you Dave.
DS:(shaking hands with a wonderful tender smile)Thank you.

There are almost 9000 hours in the year and multiply that by the number of television channels in the country and then by the number of different actors who play in those and you’ll come up with an outstanding number of choices for any television award. This year’s award for “Favorite Male Television Star” wasn’t chosen accidentally. He’s clearly and definitely a winner. Paul Michael Glaser.

Paul: Thank you. Thank you very much. I’ve been trying to think of ah, what to say and refusing to write it down before hand and I still don’t know what to say….

Paul: Are we still running long? I’d like to know how much time I’m gonna have to just kinda slow down and breathe! (He takes a deep breath). Ah, Daisy kinda put in very good words; there are an awful lot of people responsible for any one or group of us being delivered to you on the screen, on the stage, on television. And those people are very important. You know without them, the whole thing wouldn’t happen. So I’d like to thank all the people, Spelling, Goldberg, who are responsible and gave me this opportunity and I would like to thank my partner David and I would like to thank my lady, Elizabeth, who just mentioned that this is the first award I’ve ever won on my own.
