[Sniffs the Oscar.] Ah, Steve Martin, one advice, lay off the onions.
Well, this is a great honor. We brought the scriptwriter because without a great script you cannot make a great film. So, wow. First of all we want to thank the Short Fiction Film of Denmark. It's a great idea; too bad it's shut down. And M&M Productions of Denmark, thanks for supporting, thanks for the choosing. Crew and cast, great talent, I love you. And everybody at home, our friends, our loved ones, we couldn't make it without you.
