Well, this winning thing is pretty damn okay, that's all I can say. I'd like to absolutely thank Jim Cameron for letting us be a part of motion picture history. It's just fantastic. Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini, thanks for the incredible support. I want to be the first to congratulate Digital Domain, Cari Thomas, Mark Forker, Erik Nash, our friends at VIFX for Academy Award-winning work on this film. And I'd like to thank my lovely wife Cynthia.
THOMAS L. FISHER:
I'd really like to thank my entire crew. Without them I couldn't be here. Thank you.
