Thank you for Academy. Thank you for Dino De Laurentiis – I don't too much speak English – who gave us opportunity to create "Kong." Grazie.
FRANK VAN DER VEER:
Ladies and gentlemen, this represents so much effort on the part of so many people. I'm most grateful to them, to "King Kong" and Dino for making this possible. I thank them. May God bless them. And thank you.
Again, I'm very thankful for this privilege. And I'm thankful to the Academy and to Mr. De Laurentiis who gave us this privilege. And the great gang that put it together. It took a lot of facets in the special effects field and we certainly appreciate the special effects people there. Thank you.
