I have a long list of people to thank but I'll save it; give it to you later. For now, thank you, Walter Coblenz. Thank you, Alan Pakula. I thank you, Robert Redford. And thank you.

I can't say enough. I can only say what Art has said before. Thanks to everybody. It's really a pleasure.

I'd like to thank Cathey Burrow, Richard Burrow and Dave Horton for their super sound effects job. And I'd like to thank the Academy. Thank you.

I want to thank the Academy, my colleagues for the job they did, Alan Pakula and all the wonderful people at Wildwood. Art Levinson, who started me on the project. Robert Redford. And last but not least, my sound partner Chris McLaughlin, with whom I truly share this award. Thank you.
