CHARLES GUGGENHEIM:
To my wonderful editor Cathy Shields. To Michael Bacon, for his wonderful music. To my beautiful, wonderful daughter Grace, for her production. But perhaps most of all we would agree, to the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, and Morris Dees who leads that. Sara Bullard and Richard Cohen, who take their life into their hands each year to fight bigotry and hatred in this country. And to those people who fought the battle for voting in this country, who died and suffered, but we remember by this [holding up the Oscar]. Thank you.
