SPEECH BY: Production Design: Catherine Martin; Set Decoration: Beverley Dunn
FILM: "The Great Gatsby"


Beverley Dunn: Thank you. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you to our fellow nominees. We were among a great group of people. I accept this award on behalf of the truly many technicians who fall under the umbrella of the art department. And believe you me, on Gatsby, there were many, many very talented technicians who worked on the film.

Catherine Martin: I’d like to thank Karen Murphy, my associate production designer. Neither Bev nor I would be standing here if it wasn’t for you. Our supervising art director, Ian Gracie. You rock and you swear a lot. Thank you and I’ve just got to shout-out to my children or they’ll never forgive me. Hi, Lilly. Hi, William. Thank you.
