[making his acceptance speech for "The Pianist"
: My experience of making this film made me very, very aware of the... repercussions of war. Whatever you believe in - whether it's God or Allah - may he watch over you, and let us play for a peaceful and swift resolution. I have a friend from Queens who's a soldier in Kuwait right now... and I hope you make it back real soon. God bless you boys, I love you.
Hooray for Hollywood
Music by Richard A. Whiting
