Well, I would just like to say thank you to the motion picture business and industry and people, whoever you are and wherever you are, that have made my twelve years so much fun and given me so many friends. And it looks like there's another year to follow. Thank you.
You can imagine what a trip this is for a Jewish girl from Great Neck. Tonight I get to win an Academy Award and meet Elizabeth Taylor all in the same moment. Thank you so much.
My prepared remarks went out the window also. I just want to thank David Ward for making this possible and George Roy Hill for making it happen. And my partners Tony and Julia, for bringing me into this incredible industry.
