I'm very grateful for this and surprised. My percentages aren't great. I've been nominated twenty times and this is the second time I won. At the Academy, at the lunch they have for the nominees, where they have like a Randy Newman chicken by this time, the, Mr. Mischer said that it's not really good television to take a list out of your pocket and thank a lot of people. It's not my style anyway, but it is in this case. I mean, to have worked for Pixar doing the six pictures I've done, on this one Lee Unkrich and worked with Mitchell Froom, Chris Montan at Disney. I just have to thank these people. I don't want to; I want to be good television so badly, as you can see. I've been on this show any number of times and I've slowed it down almost every time. No wonder they, they only nominate four songs? There's not one—what about cinematography? It says five, you know. You could find a fifth song from someone. But hell with it! I thank—it might have beat me. Anyway, I thank you all very much for this. The Academy has been enormously kind to me as has the Music Branch. And I love you all. Thank you very much.
