Honestly, we’re only here because of the kind support and mentorship of many. I have to thank John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Lindsey Collins, Jim Morris and Ed Catmull. My parents, my wife Nancy, my three little pipers at home who inspired this story: Theo, Cora, Marcello. I love you, and may you always have the courage to face your fears.

We share this award with everyone who worked on “Piper.” Thank you so much, especially in light of the great work of our fellow nominees. We are so deeply honored to take this award tonight, accept this award tonight. To my family and friends, I love you. To all of you who enjoyed “Piper” out there and wished us well throughout, thank you so much.
