JOHN BARRY:
We are very pleased to accept this beautiful award on behalf of all our friends and compatriots who worked so hard to make the sets of "Star Wars" a success. And there's one man whose name should be engraved on this above everybody else and whose name should be on every frame of "Star Wars," and that's George Lucas. Thank you, George.
