Wow, this is definitely the night to be here: a tribute to horror films, and Roger Corman. It's unbelievable. And my wife.
Thanks to my co-editor, Bob Murawski, my amazing husband. And to Sam Raimi, who gave us both our first cutting jobs. To Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal, all our amazing crew, our assistants, Sean Valla, Rupert Lloyd.
My mom, who's here in the audience, and Chris's sister.
Everybody. We love you guys. And thanks for...
And thank you to the Academy for giving this award to a movie that was made without compromise. We didn't have any preview screenings or focus groups or studio notes. Everybody made the movie we wanted to make and it turned out great, so I'm glad everybody liked it.
