Thank you. I’m truly floored. Sting told me I was gonna win tonight, and I didn’t believe him at all. I was like, what? Obviously I didn’t prepare anything. Thank you to Warner Bros. for their tremendous, really support, supportive team. Steve Papazian. My amazing director, lovely David Yates. It’s just like a special treat to work with him. And my amazing team and the rest of the people who I’ve forgotten about tonight. Thank you all very much. My kids, who are here with me. Thanks so much.
