QUENTIN TARANTINO:
Thanks. This has been a very strange year. I can definitely say that. Uhmmmm, you know what? I was trying to think. I think this is probably the only award I'm going to win here tonight so I was trying to think maybe I should just say a whole lot of stuff right here, right now, just get it all out of my system. Then I thought about all year long everything building up and everything, just blow it all, just tonight, just, just say everything! But I'm not. Thanks.

ROGER AVARY:
I'd want to thank my beautiful wife Gretchen who I love more than anything in the world. And I really have to take a pee right now, so I'm going to go. Thank you.
