Wow, I want to pay, first of all, a tribute for the power of the music. And I want to thank you and pay tribute to my co-nominees: Mr. Williams, Mr. Shore, and Mr. Iglesias. And Hans Zimmer is downstairs, he refused to submit to this year's, so I thank you for your chair, Hans Zimmer. I don't know if you can see him. Thank you Sheila E. and all the musicians tonight for the wonderful show. Can I have ten seconds more, Hans? Sorry, I have a little speech. I'd like to thank the Academy. With this...
to the tune of "The Birth of the Blues"
