Outrageous. In the truest sense of the word I will say to you that this represents a dream come true. Many, many years of believing and dreaming and a lot of friends and a lot of family that said, "You can do it, just keep on trying hard." I want to say to all of them and to all the people that have supported me over the years, thank you very much for keeping up with my foolishness. To the Academy I want to say to you again, or should I say for the first time, thank you. And this is outrageous.
