Onstage Speech Transcript | 85th Academy Awards

CATEGORY: Production Design
SPEECH BY: Rick Carter and Jim Erickson
FILM: "Lincoln"


Rick Carter: Very much not prepared for this. Jim Erickson, who's the set decorator, shares this honor. And all of us who worked on this movie of Lincoln, I think in our own ways tried to be worthy of a legacy that's way beyond all of us, especially Steven and Kathy and Tony and Sally, but of course, Daniel, who actually convinced us that he was Lincoln. And the legacy that I think that he personified for all of us goes to our heart and it's worth far more than any gold any of us could ever have and I just thank you and I love my wife, Adele.
