Speaking for us all, including Dennis Skotak and Brian Johnson and the entire effects team, we'd like to thank the members of the Motion Picture Academy, our producer Gale Anne Hurd, and most of all the creative genius responsible for it all, Jim Cameron. Thank you, Jim.
We'd also like to thank our respective crews who went to make up the Anglo-American team, because they did all the work. Thank you, fellows. Thank you, Academy.
It's a great recognition. Thank you.
Thank you so much.
