Acceptance Speech

I'd like to thank the Academy and New Line, Mark Ordesky and Carla Fry. Peter Jackson who is a sensational person to work with, Fran Walsh and Barrie Osborne for giving me the opportunity to work on an amazing project. I had the privilege of working with a really sensational cast and terrific crews, predominantly New Zealanders. I want to send my love to my partner Bronwen and my sons Jack and Sam who are probably still at school in Sydney. I just want to say Australia and New Zealand are terrific places to grow up and great to work in and great to live in. And last of all, I want to dedicate this to the late Brian Bansgrove, who was the Chief Lighting Technician on LORD OF THE RINGS, on the trilogy and, Brian, this is for you. Thank you.
