I'm fumbling. We would like to thank the Academy. This award represents thousands of man-hours of delicate but nonetheless backbreaking work of over a hundred of our colleagues and countrymen. We thank them all. Thanks to Angus, who's beside me now, and was beside me when we did everything. And to the extraordinary Baz Luhrmann who has got us up here, who cares as much about the embroidery detail on a can-can skirt as he does about lens size or dialogue. It was your vision, this is your Oscar, Baz.
We would also like to thank the best wardrobe supervisor I think anybody could hope for in Eliza Godman. The beautiful pictures of Don McAlpine, thank you. To the marvelous hair and makeup of Aldo, Maurizio and Lesley and their teams. Nevertheless, we'd like to also thank the continual love and support of our family, friends and loved ones. For me the rewards of this film happened well before tonight. I'll be eternally grateful for the joy given by this girl [referring to Catherine Martin] and our Baz Luhrmann. Thank you.
