Thank you so much. I must share this great honor with all the nominated directors, with all the other men and women out there struggling to make short films; but guys, I'm gonna keep it at my house, okay?! I have to thank Leslie Hoffman, Steve Hewitt, Polly Platt, Marc Reshovsky, Lisa Bromwell, and a great crew. My cast, especially Danny Aiello and Nancy Travis. My husband Tommy Schlamme, who inspired and supported me every step of the way. Emma, Joe and Wilson, my treasures -- I love you. And Dad at home and Mom, you're right here tonight [pointing to her heart], forever. This is for you. And now thank you to Jana Memel.
JANA SUE MEMEL:
Thank you, Showtime, John Vasey, Hillary Ripps, Thom Colwell, and especially Roy Langboard*, and my parents. Good night, Molly and Zoe. Thank you.
