I love my job. What an honor to be singled out in a year with so much terrific work. Boy am I glad there wasn't a fourth episode of "Lord of the Rings."
What a joy to work and share this award with so many talented people: our director Sam Raimi, Scott, Anthony, John, all of the artists, technicians and producers that collaborated on the effects for this picture. We'd like to thank our families. Hi, Cass, Chloe, Mom. We'd like to thank Sony Pictures for all your support. Thank you, Academy. Thank you, everyone!
