DAVID FINE:
I think I'm just gonna stand here and watch the clock count down. That will be easier. Thank you to the Academy. We'd also like to thank Channel 4 television in Britain and Claire Kitson in particular for commissioning the film and for supporting British animation so much over the years. We'd also like to thank the National Film Board of Canada, Barrie McLean, and David Verrall for co-producing with us. Also thanks to Andy Hamilton, Harry Enfield, Janet Perlman, Patrick Godfrey and everyone who worked so hard on the film over two years.

ALISON SNOWDEN:
And all of our friends and family, for all their inspiration and support.

DAVID FINE:
And most importantly, we'd like to dedicate this award to the memory of our dear friend Mike Gribble who sadly isn't here tonight. Thank you very, very much.
