92nd Oscars Onstage Speech Transcript: COSTUME DESIGN

SPEECH BY: Jacqueline Durran



Thank you to the Academy. I'm indebted to a lot of people. To a wonderful team. To an amazing cast. To producer Amy Pascal. To my family, who enable me to be a working mother. And first and last, to Greta Gerwig. She was an inspiration to all of us with her courage and her brilliance. Thank you.
