Thank you so much. Certain Academy Awards, like Sound and Visual Effects and Editing, are sometimes referred to as technical awards. They are not technical awards; they're given for artistic decisions. Sometimes we make them better than others, and I guess we made a couple of good ones on this one. Thank you so much, Brad Bird and Skywalker Sound. Lisa and Austin, this is for you.
I'd like to share this with my superheroes, the sound editing crew. And Lois, Rebecca, Emma and Bonnie, I love you. Thank you, everybody.
