Terry George: Thanks, this is my daughter, the producer. I want to thank the Academy. Now I don’t have to wait for her wedding to tell the world how brilliant she is. Our little film was inspired by the people of Northern Ireland, Protestant and Catholic, who after 30 years of war, sat down, negotiated a peace, and proved to the world that the Irish are great talkers. I want to dedicate this to them. And thank you again. Thank you very much.
