======BEGIN TRANSCRIPTION======

Thanks to the Academy, especially this year they got the shorts out to all the nominees. To everyone at Disney, particularly John Lasseter, Ed Catmull and Andrew Millstein who have just been great at revitalizing the studio. To Kristina Reed my producer, the cast and crew, everyone who helped on it. They made it so much better than I could ever have hoped. To my wife, the amazing Gennie Rim. And to my kids, Ben and Johnny, I’ll see you tonight. Bye.
