I don't want to step on your tail. It's hard to follow that face.
We thank you, the Academy. We thank J.J. Abrams. Your vision inspired us, your energy kept us going, and your insistence on perfection brought us here. We thank Bad Robot, Paramount Pictures; we felt your support every day. We had an amazing staff of artists, over forty. We share this with you and we'll be giving your names backstage at that backstage Thank You Cam. Thank you very much.
Happy anniversary, baby.
