Oh my God! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Wait a minute, we did only get thirty seconds, and to give a thousand thank you's. I just want to thank everybody I have ever met in my entire life. Curtis Hanson, Curtis Hanson, Curtis Hanson. The cast and crew from the movie. I could not have done this without them. Annett Wolf, my great friend Georgia, my sister Ashley, my husband Alec, my baby girl Ireland. If anyone has a dream out there, just know that I am living proof that they do come true. Thank you so much to the Academy. I am so grateful for this. And Daddy, this is for you.
