Well first of all, we'd like to thank the Academy for having this category. Tim Burton, Denise Di Novi and Touchstone Pictures, for making the film. Scott and Larry, for their screenplay. All of the actors, but especially Martin for his cooperation and brilliant performance. I'd like to thank these talented women up here with me as well as all the other makeup and hair people that contributed to "Ed Wood." And lastly, I'd like to thank the late, great makeup artist Jack Pierce. Jack's makeups were the first to inspire me to get into this business where they not only pay and feed you but honor you for doing something that you truly love. Thank you very much.
