The only time in my career I'm going to follow Robin Williams. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you most of all to Jim Cameron, whose passion for filmmaking makes all of us do our best work. And also, I think, with the great success of "Titanic" I hope that you attain the self-confidence you'll need to succeed in this business. I'd like to thank Jon Landau for the promise of points -- no. I'd like to thank Paramount and Fox studios. Gloria Borders and everyone at Skywalker Sound. Tom Bellfort, Chris Boyes, their great editing crew, especially Ethan Van der Ryn, Gwen Whittle, and Hugh Waddell. Thanks to Lora Hirschberg; James Horner, for his beautiful music; Jim Henrikson; Joe E. Rand; Shawn Murphy.
