Acceptance Speech: Production Design



I share this completely with Sandy, my wife and set decorator, whose support and talent have elevated my work over the years and added special brightness to “La La Land.” And Damien, we wouldn’t be up here without you. Thank you so much. From our very first meetings together with Linus Sandgren and Mary Zophres, DP and costume designer, when you went through each page of the script with us, right up to the planning of the scenery for the finale and epilogue with Justin’s music and Mandy Moore’s choreography, you shared your vision with such joy, energy and precision that we couldn’t help but have captured it. Thank you for your enthusiasm you shared with us. Thank you.
