Well that's not it, that's the rest of Frank Sinatra's speech. With that in mind, with that in mind I'd like to go right up front and thank my parents, Fred and Barbara, and the rest of the family back in England.
My family -- Cindy and my family, for knowing that I'm not usually this wooden.
And we'd also like to thank Steven Spielberg, Universal Pictures, and everyone at Amblin, especially Michael Kahn and Colin Wilson.
Also thanks to Cate Coombs* and Kiki Morris and everyone at Skywalker North.
Also sound effects editors Terry Eckton, Ken Fischer and Tim Holland, and my amazing assistant Ruth Hasty.
My amazing assistant Chris Boyes, and foley artists Dennie Thorpe, Sandina Bailo-Lape, Mary Helen Leasman and the rest of her editing team who really do the work and share in this award. Thank you very much.
