First of all, we'd like to dedicate this award to Ken Weston, the other member of our crew who couldn't be here tonight. He's at home and we miss him. We'd also like to thank Ridley Scott for his vision and his generosity. We'd like to thank DreamWorks, Universal Pictures, of course Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, Marty Cohen and Lisa Dennis Kennedy.
And we're proud to congratulate Doug Wick, David Franzoni and Branko Lustig for a truly great film, as well as our picture editor Pietro Scalia and composers Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard. And everyone at Todd-AO Studios. And a very special thanks to our supervising sound editor Per Hallberg and his great crew. And to our families, Cindy, Jessica and Amy, and Mom and Dad.
And Deborah, Ashley and Brandon. And thank you, the Academy. Thank you very much!
