Good evening. Thank you for this great honor tonight to be here. Thank you to the Academy. I would like to say thank you, first of all, to Martin Scorsese. Great, great, great director which we love very, very much. And I want to say thank you to all the producers: To Graham King, Michael Mann, to Harvey Weinstein. And all the entire art department, which, without them, it was impossible for me to do this for us. Thank you.
FRANCESCA LO SCHIAVO:
Just I'd like to say, this Oscar is for Melissa, Eduardo and Giorgio.
