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

I share this wondrous award with our visionary captain, Mr. Ang Lee. There he is, we're playing this game again. You've guided a truly global cast and crew in the telling of this wondrous, beautiful story that transcends culture and race and religion. In the same spirit, musicians from around the globe came together to breathe life into this music and I hold this award on their behalf. I want to thank my beautiful Fox family, my mom, who's in a balcony here watching, my father who's also watching. And most of all, my wife Aparna and our two beautiful boys, Arjun and Keshav, who remind me every day why stories like this need to be told. Thank you everyone. Thank you, Academy.
