JUSTIN HURWITZ:
Thank you so much to the Academy. Thank you to my very, very good friend, Damien. I’m so glad I met you. Thank you to Marc Platt, Jordan Horowitz, Fred Berger. Thank you to everybody at Lionsgate. Thank you to all the L.A. musicians who played on this score. I just put notes on the page, and they’re the ones who made it beautiful and sound the way it does. If I start going through names, I could make at most 20 to 30 people happy, but I’ll make about a hundred, a couple hundred million people really bored. So I’ll just leave it at everybody whose work is onscreen in any way in this movie. I was looking at your work when I was scoring the picture. I was looking at what you did when I was scoring the picture, and that’s what inspired me. So thank you to everybody who worked on this movie. Thank you.

JOANNA NATASEGARA:
[unintelligible] Okay, well, thanks to the Academy for this huge honor. To all of our teams. Of course to Netflix, our work family, for supporting us with this film but most of all, thank you to the White Helmets.

ORLANDO VON EINSIEDEL:
Sadly, Raed Saleh, the head of the White Helmets, is not able to join us tonight. We have a very short statement from him that we’d like to share with you: We’re so grateful that this film has highlighted our work to the world. Our organization is guided by a verse from the Koran: “to save one life is to save all of humanity.” We have saved more than 82,000 civilian lives. I invite anyone here who hears me to work on the side of life, to stop the bloodshed in Syria and around the world.

It’s very easy for these guys to feel they’re forgotten. This war’s been going on for six years. If everyone could just stand up and remind them that we all care, that this war end as quickly as possible. Thank you.
