I'd like to thank the membership for realizing that "Babe" was a visual effects film; animals don't really talk. Uh, and to George Miller and Chris Noonan's vision of a world where animals have as much humanity and personality as humans do. To Karl Miller, whose amazing animal action was an inspiration to us. To Marcus D'Arcy, John Friedkin and to the team at Rhythm & Hues.
I'd like to thank John Stephenson and everybody at Henson's Creature Shop. Above all I'd like to thank my crew. Their brilliance and dedication make this their award too. I'd also like to thank you, the Academy.
I'd like to thank Greg McKee, Chris Chitty, Matt Ward, my loyal crew, my mum and my family.
SCOTT E. ANDERSON:
Hey to Chris Noonan. This is for you, your friends and your friendship. Thanks a lot.
