Oh, no. [To the statuette:] Happy birthday, man. I have an American agent who is the spitting image of this, really truly the same shape head and, it has to be said, the buttocks. And I'm giving this to him because there's no way I would be in America at all, ever on a plane, if it wasn't for him. So, Brian Swardstrom, I'm giving this to you.
And Tony Gilroy walks on water, it's entirely official as far as I'm concerned. And Jen Fox and Steve Samuels, our incredible producers, and Sydney Pollack. And George Clooney, you know, the seriousness and the dedication to your art. Seeing you climb into that rubber bat suit from "Batman & Robin," the one with the nipples, every morning under your costume, on the set, off the set, hanging upside-down at lunch. You rock, man.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
