It's been a while. It feels the same, though [holding the Oscar]. Thank you, Academy. And special thanks to Ginny and my lovely family. And special, special thanks for the beautiful twenty-five years between "Peter Gunn" and "Victor/Victoria" to Blake Edwards.
I'd like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Edwards, Blake and Julie, and all the wonderful people around you, especially my friend there, Henry/Henrietta [referring to Mancini]. And thank you, Academy. Evie, for you. Thanks.
