Anders Walter: Wow, this is crazy. I want to thank the Academy. And I want to thank the Short Branch for keeping this category in the show.

It’s amazing. It’s an amazing window for new talents to show their film. I want to thank an amazing cast. A fantastic crew who did this film for no money at all, who just showed up and fell in love with this… this film. And I want to thank my family, I want to thank my beautiful wife, Ana, and my beautiful daughter, Clara. And I want to thank two great producers who’s always behind me. One is Tivi Magnusson and the other one is his son, this guy, Kim Magnusson.

Kim Magnusson: I just want to take a quick note and thank everybody who keeps on making the shorts. Our fellow nominees, thank you, congratulations to all. And then I would like to thank my wife, Rebecca, my four kids, and for my mother… this is for you. Iknow you’re watching at home, sick. So this is for you, Mom.
