Wow. I'd like to thank my family, the Academy, USA Films, our producers Ed Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz and Laura Bickford. My crew: Doug Crise, Keith Sauter, Norman Walker and Denise Marquez. I'd like to thank Stephen Gaghan for writing such a beautiful and emotional script, and the entire cast and crew whose outstanding achievement speaks for itself. And Steven Soderbergh, it is a thrill to work with you and it's a privilege to know you. Thank you very much. Thank you.
