TOMMY LEE JONES:
My thanks to the Academy for the very finest, greatest award that any actor can ever receive. The only thing a man can say at a time like this is: I am not really bald. Actually, I'm lucky enough to be working and for that I have to thank the boss, Bob Daly, the other boss, Terry Semel. Also Arnon Milchan, Steve Reuther, Arnold Kopelson, Andy Davis, Peter MacGregor-Scott, Michael Chapman. My friends Bill Jacobson and Michael Black. My dear, courageous family: Victoria, Kimberlea, and Austin Jones. Above all I thank the man who needs no support at all, Harrison Ford. For all of you, thanks for the work.

[Ed. note: Mr. Jones' head was shaved for his role in the film "Cobb," which was in production at the time.]
