SPEECH BY: Ludovic Bource
FILM: "The Artist"
Wow, I want to pay, first of all, a tribute for the power of the music and I want to thank you and pay tribute to my co-nominees Mr. Williams, Mr. Shore, and Mr. Iglesias. And Hans Zimmer is downstairs, he refused to submit to this year’s, so I thank you for your chair Hans Zimmer. I don’t know if you can see him. Thank you [unintelligible] and all the musicians tonight for the wonderful show. Can I have ten seconds more, Hans? Sorry, I have a little speech. I’d like to thank the Academy; with this Oscar you have given a man a special honor. And to all of you, please accept me because I’ve got so much love to give. I’ve got so much love to give to you, my wife Sara is there, [French]. Thank you for all. Thank you, Michel.
