Thank you, "Flik." Thank you, members of the Academy. This award is especially thrilling because it's been a labor of love, "Bunny," for all of us at Blue Sky Studios in New York for many years actually. And so to my beautiful wife and family, Jean*, Sarah and Jack; Mom and Dad; Nina Rappaport, my producer; Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan, for their soulful music; and every one of you that is now or ever has been a member of Blue Sky Studios. Thank you all very much for helping me follow my heart and for pouring so much of yours into "Bunny." Thank you.
