MARK ANDREWS: I just happened to be wearing the kilt; I didn’t plan any of this. I’d like to thank the Academy for this incredible honor. Making a movie has its own story. I’d like to thank John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, Jim Morris, Andrew Stanton, Pete¬† Docter, Brenda Chapman, Katherine Sarafian for making the making of Brave an exceptional story. My wife and my four kids: Maeve, Jack, Hayden and Ford.
