We'd like to thank the Academy, Columbia, Amblin, Steven Spielberg, Barry Sonnenfeld. Walter, Laurie, Graham and Steve Molen, for making the film. Don Peterman, for his photography -- get well, Don. A special thanks to my crew. I'm honored to work with such talented artists. You're only as good as your crew, and I guess this means I have a damn good crew. Vincent D'Onofrio and Tony Shalhoub, for their patience and cooperation. Vincent was incredibly patient while David and I practically tortured him. Lastly, I'd like to thank my wife Silvia, and my daughters Veronica and Rebecca for their love and support and for teaching me the meaning of joy. I love you guys very much. Thank you.
