Onstage Speech Transcript | 84th Academy Awards


SPEECH BY: Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland
FILM: "The Iron Lady"


J. Roy Helland: Thank you Academy and thank you to my colleague on “The Iron Lady” Mark Coulier, without whose brilliant prosthetics I wouldn’t be standing here this evening. Thanks Meryl, for keeping me employed for the last 37 years. Your brilliance makes my work look good no matter what. I’m a child of the Saturday and Sunday double-double features so getting to work in the movies is a dream come true. Thank you.

Mark Coulier: I’d just like to say what an amazing experience. Thanks to Meryl, you were incredible. And just a quick thank you to Barrie Gower and Stephen Murphy and my kids Isabelle, Ethan and my wife Amanda and my dad. Thank you guys.
