I want to thank the Academy for honoring "Schindler's List" with this wonderful award. It's been an extraordinary year. The process was painful, but the result was glorious. "Schindler's List" has become an international event that has enriched all our lives. I want to thank you, Steven, for the most fulfilling time of my life, and I'm so grateful to you for sharing with me this remarkable gift. Thanks, Chickie, for your constant encouragement, and producers Gerry and Branko for your help. And to my terrific editing team, Al and Pat, Michael and Peter, for your strength and loyalty. And Adam and Allison, I love you. Good night. Thank you, everybody. Thank you.
