It's a bit like facing three thousand buffalo. I think "Dances" would have been a fabulous, fine movie even if it had been shot on Super 8. And Kevin and Jim, all I can say is thanks, thanks for having me aboard. And thanks for not shooting it in Super 8. I had a fabulous crew that were very supportive and I love them all and thank them all. My wife Annie, the blonde bombshell from Down Under, thanks. My daughter Ingrid, hi, thanks for your love, your patience. I'm a very proud little Aussie up here tonight to accept this, and I thank you all. I thank the Academy. And I thank America. Thanks.
