Robin Mathews: Thank you so much to the Academy. My goodness, you all fought for the hair and makeup of this film. You fought for it and even fulfilled every dream we’ve ever had. To our friends and family, thank you. To Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, thank you so much for letting us transform and torture you through a million, bazillion hair and makeup changes a day. And for your support with our makeup.

Jean-Marc Vallée, you are a visionary. You are so amazing. And thank you for choosing the two of us to take this crazy journey with you. And finally for all the victims of AIDS, we are so lucky and blessed to be able to bring your story to the forefront of the younger generation today that doesn’t understand AIDS `85. We’re very blessed. Thank you.

Adruitha Lee: Thank you. Hello, Alex and Nathan.
