Thank you so much. My Scotsman giving the Welsh girl... I can't believe it. Oh my gosh. This is too--I mean, my hormones are just too way out of control to be dealing with this.
Thank you so much, the Academy. To be nominated with such amazing women in an amazing year for women, thank you very much. Everyone involved in "Chicago." There's so many people. Rob Marshall, Harvey Weinstein, Craig, Neil, everybody, and all the cast and crew.
Everybody in Swansea, South Wales, I love you. And to my son Dylan, who is going to be watching at home, and to my husband, who I love and I share this award with you, along with this one, too, thank you so much.
[Ed. note: Miss Zeta-Jones was nearly nine months pregnant at the time and refers in her speech to her soon-to-be-born second child.]
