Oh my! Oh my god! Oh wow! Really, really, really, really, really, truly wow. I know there's a lot of people that said a lotta real, real nice things to me for several months now, but I'm just shakin' in my boots here. Okay, alright. Thank you, David O. Russell. I want to thank the actors: Mark Wahlberg; Christian Bale – he might've run out for a second; Amy, my sweet sister Adams; Jack; our lovely daughters. Okay... yeah, I am kind of speechless. Golly sakes, there's people up there, too [waving to the balcony sections]. When I watched Kate two years ago it looked so fuckin easy – oops!
Alice Ward, your beautiful family that opened your hearts. I saw Mick here earlier. Dick, shout out for Nana? Alright, Dick's not in the room. Thank you so much, opening your hearts to all of us to make this film. I thanked David, I'll thank him again. My family, my beautiful son who's traveling right now in South America and can't join me. It's okay; I'm okay, Jack. My mom and my dad, and my brother, and my friends, and my family. And I wanna thank the very most of all, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences, their board of governors and all their members, whom many of you are here today. This has been an extraordinary journey in getting to know what the Academy is about, and first and foremost, thank you, Academy. Because it's about sellin' motion pictures and respecting the work! Thank you so much!
