The Oscars (2018 TV Special)
Jimmy Kimmel: Here's how clueless Hollywood is about women. We made a movie called "What Women Want" and it starred Mel Gibson.
Himself - Winner: Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Thanks. Okay. Run that clock, Jimmy. I want to get that ski jet, or whatever that was. I'd like to thank the Academy-never thought I'd say those words. Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Christopher Plummer, Woody Harrelson: You guys rock! You inspire me, and you always have. When I was eight years old I was called into the principal's office. And my father was looking very solemn, and he said, "We gotta go. It's Grandma." And we got in the car and I said, "What's wrong with Grandma?" And he said, "Nothin'. We're going to the movies." My mom and dad's love of movies became my love of movies, so thank you for that, Mom and Dad. I love you. Thank you, the formidable Frances McDormand-we're at the convention, Frances. The fantastic Woody Harrelson. You guys are my heroes. The rest of this incredible cast and crew-incredible! Fox Searchlight, everyone involved in "Three Billboards." Everyone who's ever looked at a billboard. Martin McDonagh, I wouldn't be standing here if it wasn't for you. I want to do ten other movies with you, I love you. Rhonda, Elise, Jason, Liz Mahoney, Liz Himmelstein, Terry Knickerbocker, all my good friends. And my beloved Leslie Bibb, you light my fire, baby. I love you. This, uh... This is for my old buddy Phil Hoffman. For my old buddy Phil Hoffman.
Himself - Winner: Best Makeup and Hairstyling: Firstly, we would like to give our heartfelt thanks to Gary Oldman.

Yes, about Russia; but more than that, about the importance of telling the truth, now more than ever.

Everyone from Sony Classics, Tom Bernard, Michael Barker, Participant Media, Setembro Cine, Komplizen Films. And my wife Virginia, I love you forever. Thank you so, so much.
Herself - Best Actress in a Supporting Role: I did it all by myself. Okay, nothing further from the truth. Thank you to the Academy. My fellow nominees, you represent everything that is good and right and human about this profession. You are all extraordinary. Steven Rogers, look what you did. Look what you did. You're a brilliant writer; thank you for the gift of "LaVona." I did not see this coming; you did. You give new meaning to the word "friend." To my "I, Tonya" family: the magnificent Margot Robbie, the fearless Craig Gillespie, a cast and crew and bird that elevated my work. To Tom and Bryan, Neon, 30 West. My team Janney: Leslie Siebert, Chris Henze, Ilana Reiss, Karen Samfilippo. We've been together a long time; thank you for all of your work.

Himself - Winner: Best Animated Short Film: Thank you. Thank you, Academy. Thank you, Gennie Rim, Max Keane, our entire crew for your incredible talents. My wife Linda, for your years of love and support. And to Kobe, for writing "Dear Basketball". It's a message for all of us. Whatever form your dream may take, it's through passion and perseverance that the impossible is possible.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Animated Short Film: I don't know if it's possible; I mean, as basketball players we're really supposed to "shut up and dribble." But I'm glad we do a little bit more than that. Thank you, Academy, for this amazing honor. Thank you, John Williams, for such a wonderful piece of music. Thank you, Verizon, for believing in the film. Thank you, Molly Carter, without you we wouldn't be here. And to my wife Vanessa, our daughters Natalia, Gianna and Bianka: Ti amo con tutto il mio cuore. You are my inspiration. Thank you so much, guys. Thank you.
Herself - Co-Winner: Thank you to the Academy. We are so happy. "Coco" is proof that art can change and connect the world, and this can only be done when we have a place for everyone and anyone who feels like an "other" to be heard. This is dedicated with enormous love to my gigantic, interwoven family and most especially my wife, my rock, Kori Rae.
Adrian Molina: Love and thanks to my family, my Latino community, to my husband Ryan, each for expanding my sense of what it means to be proud of who you are and where you're from. We hope the same thing for everyone who connected with this film.
Himself - Winner: Best Animated Feature Film: We share this with our immensely talented cast and crew as well as the executive teams at Disney and Pixar. Thanks for the support of my wife Laura, my three kids, Hannah, Alice, Max. My entire family, I love you. And the biggest thank you of all to the people of Mexico. "Coco" would not exist without your endlessly beautiful culture and traditions. With "Coco" we tried to take a step forward toward a world where all children can grow up seeing characters in movies that look and talk and live like they do. Marginalized people deserve to feel like they belong. Representation matters.
Anthony Gonzalez: ¡Muchísimas gracias a todos y que viva México!
Himself - Winner: Best Visual Effects: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you so much, Academy, members of the Academy, for this great honor. Thank you, Denis Villeneuve, whose, you know, guts are seen in every frame of this film, especially the visual effects.

And...
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Visual Effects: My god, this is so surreal. I share this with my incredible team, led by Michelle back at Double Negative. My family, especially for putting up with the crazy hours of the last 22 years.
[Music begins to play]
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Visual Effects: Hopefully my boys Boston* and Jackson are watching right now. And to all the people who have had such a big influence on me and my career. Thank you.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Visual Effects: To all my friends in Montreal, merci beaucoup. This is for you.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Visual Effects: Danke schön, Germany. Thank you. Great.
Himself - Winner: Best Visual Effects: Thank you so much.
Himself - Winner: Best Film Editing: I just want to say this is the most awesome thing that can happen to a guy like me. I really want to just start by thanking Christopher Nolan, who-they moved me from over there to sit with him
[pointing to Nolan in the audience]
Himself - Winner: Best Film Editing: . Because Chris is an editor himself. I mean, he doesn't handle the actual equipment, and I'm very, very happy for that. His fabulous wife Emma, always supportive, great producer, incredible. I mean, "Dunkirk" was truly the most amazing film, and I'm very fortunate to have worked on it. I'd also like to thank my beautiful wife, sitting over there, Kimberly. My daughter up in the nosebleed section, wherever. I'm wrapping up, I'm wrapping up! Melanie Ramsayer, John Lee, my editorial assistants, Warner Bros., the Academy-can't talk any quicker. I'm an editor, I should be able to this very quickly. Matthew McConaughey, awesome. Thank you.
Himself - Winner: Best Documentary Short: My kids are hosting an Oscar party, which I think probably just got a lot louder. This is amazing for so many reasons. The source of this film is the source of everything that's gone well for me for the last forty years; it's my wife, BJ Dockweiler. To Ting Poo, Casey Price, Paul Maroon, Masaki Yokochi, Ben Marias, thank you for giving the film what I couldn't. To Mindy, who's somewhere up there
[looking toward the balcony section]
Himself - Winner: Best Documentary Short: . Mindy, I'm really proud of this, but I always knew that the only reason people would care about it is because we all care about you. Thank you.
Herself - Co-Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: Oh god, hello.
[Speaking simultaneously in sign language:]
Herself - Co-Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: I made a promise to our six-year-old lead actress that I'd sign this speech but my hands are shaking a little bit so I apologize. Thank you. Our movie is about a deaf child being born into a world of silence. It's not exaggerated or sensationalized for the movie; this is happening. Millions of children all over the world live in silence and face communication barriers, and particularly access to education. So, deafness is a silent disability. You can't see it and it's not life-threatening, so I want to say the biggest of thank you's to the Academy for allowing us to put this in front of a mainstream audience.
[End sign language]
Himself - Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: This was such a team effort so I've got to say thank you to our parents for making and selling cupcakes so we could...
Herself - Co-Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: Thanks, Mum.
Himself - Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: ...for helping us finish the film. Thanks, everyone who backed our Indiegogo campaign. Thank you, Vannessa Johnstone, Terry Murphy, all our executive producers, Danny Ormerod, everyone at Slick Showreels and Slick Films. All our incredible cast and crew: Maisie Sly, Julie Foy, Rebecca Harris,
[music begins to play]
Himself - Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: Ali Farahani, we couldn't do it without you. But lastly, my fiancée, Rachel Shenton, it's really your hard work for the last twelve years that has really made this project authentic. Thank you so much, guys.
Himself - Winner: Best Adapted Screenplay: Well, I'll try and keep it-I'll make it as fast I can, before the music plays. My rule number one for a screenwriter who adapts a novel is first thank the author: André Aciman, who wrote the story about first love and who's here tonight. A story familiar to most of us; whether we're straight or gay, or somewhere in between, we've all gone through first love, I hope, and come out the other side mostly intact. Though maybe not without the benefit of loving parents like the Perlmans in this film. I want to thank our sensitive and sensible director, Luca Guadagnino, as well as my neighbors in Upstate New York, Peter Spears and Brian Swardstrom, who offered me this job. Of course, I want to thank the film's wonderful emotion-filled actors; I wouldn't be standing up here tonight without their inspired help. And I wouldn't be standing up here without the inspired help I received from my life's partners who are gone: our writer Ruth Jhabvala, who received this award twice, and our fearless producer Ismail Merchant. Working with them for close to fifty years at Merchant Ivory led me to this award. And my profound thanks to the members of the Academy; in voting for me you are remembering them. And finally, my thanks to Sony Classics, to Michael Barker and to Tom Bernard, for getting behind this film in such a princely way. Thank you very much, everyone.
Himself - Winner: Best Original Screenplay: Okay. Thank you. You guys are gonna mess up my jet ski; hold up. This means so much to me. I stopped writing this movie about twenty times because I thought it was impossible. I thought it wasn't gonna work. I thought no one would ever make this movie. But I kept coming back to it because I knew if someone let me make this movie, that people would hear it, and people would see it. So, I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie. Donna, Ron at Universal; everybody, QC, Sean, Ted; Bea, Jason at Blumhouse: You guys, thank you so much. To the cast and crew, I love you; thank you so much. My wife, who supported me through this whole process. My mother, who taught me to love even in the face of hate. And to everybody who went and saw this movie. Everybody who bought a ticket, who told somebody to buy a ticket, thank you. I love you for shouting out at the theater, for shouting out at the screen. Let's keep going. Brian Roberts, thank you. I love you all. Thank you so much. Good night.
Himself - Winner: Best Cinematography: Thank you. Thank you. I guess I better say something or else they'll give me a jet ski, and I don't see myself on a jet ski, somehow. I want to share this with my wife of 27 years: James,
[he does a high-five sign, which she does back from the audience]
Himself - Winner: Best Cinematography: whatever. I want to share it with Andrew and Broderick and Denis Villeneuve. You know, I really love my job. I've been doing it a long time, as you can see. But you know, one of the reasons I really love it is the people I work with, both in front of the camera and behind the camera. Some of my crew on "Blade Runner" I've been working with for over thirty years, and others I met for the first time in Budapest. And this is for every one of them, every one of them. In fact, I gotta say it's for us. Because it was a team. It was really a team effort. Thank you. Thank you very much.
Himself - Winner: Best Original Score: Merci. C'est fantastique. I'm very grateful to the Academy. My mother is also turning 90 this year so I think she'd be very happy tonight. Yes. She's Greek, by the way. Now, Guillermo, thank you, you know, thank you for letting the music be the voice of your characters and convey the beautiful melancholy of love. That's
[indicating his Oscar]
Himself - Winner: Best Original Score: for you. I wish to thank Miles Dale, Fox Searchlight and the music department at Fox. All the musicians who played on the score and those downstairs here. And I wish to thank Queen Renée Fleming, Laura Engel, Ray Costa, my friend Katz. And Solré, you elevate my music, everything I write, by your musical genius, thank you. But this is not for you; it's for our daughters, Ninon and Antonia. Thank you.
Herself - Winner: We were gonna go for the jet ski, but we're from Brooklyn, so, uh, here we go. Thank you, guys. Thank you, Academy. I really want to take a minute to look at this category of incredible nominated songwriters tonight. Not only are we diverse, but we are close to 50/50 for gender representation. When you look at a category like ours, it helps us imagine a world where all the categories look like this one.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Original Song: Thanks to Lee, Darla and everyone at Pixar for letting us be a part of this important celebration of Mexico, music and family. Thanks to everyone who worked on and performed this song. And a shout out to our "Frozen" Broadway family on Broadway that's just finished with some previews.
Herself - Winner: Most of all we thank our family: the Andersons and the Lopezes, and our daughters Katie and Annie who are here with us tonight. Your love and creativity inspire everything we do.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Original Song: But this is not for you, this is for my mom who passed away. Everyone who knew her will always remember her.
Himself - Winner: Best Director: Thank you. I am an immigrant like Alfonso and Alejandro, my compadres. Like Gael. Like Salma. And like many, many of you. And in the last twenty-five years, I've been living in a country all of our own: part of it is here, part of it is in Europe, part of it is everywhere. Because I think that the greatest thing our art does and our industry does is to erase the lines in the sand. We should continue doing that when the world tells us to make them deeper. The place I like to live the most is at Fox Searchlight, because in 2014 they came to listen to a mad pitch with some drawings and the story and a maquette. And they believed that a fairy tale about an amphibian god and mute woman done in the style of Douglas Sirk, and a musical, and a thriller was a sure bet. I wanna thank the people that have come with me all the way: Kimmy, Robert, Gary, Wayne and George, and my kids. And I wanna say like Jimmy Cagney said once: My mother thanks you. My father thanks you. My brothers and sisters thank you. And I thank you very much. Thank you.
Himself - Winner: Best Actor in a Leading Role: Well, my deepest thanks to the Academy and its members for this glorious prize. I owe this and so much more to so many. I've lived in America for the longest time and I am deeply grateful to her for the loves and the friendships I have made and the many wonderful gifts it has given me: my home, my livelihood, my family and now Oscar. The movies, such is their power, captivated a young man from South London and gave him a dream. And Douglas Urbanski, my dear, dear friend and brother, you have helped keep that dream alive. Joe Wright, thank you for this
[holding out the Oscar]
Himself - Winner: Best Actor in a Leading Role: . It only took twenty years for us to work together, but it was well worth the wait. Thank you, Kazu, Lucy, David, for your artistry. Thank you, everyone at Working Title and Universal Focus, for your herculean efforts and support on this film. Thank you, Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan, Lisa Bruce, Anthony McCarten. Dani and her amazing team. And of course, Jim Osborne. I would just like to salute Sir Winston Churchill who has been marvelous company on what can be described as an incredible journey, and my wife Gisele for traveling that road with me and being at my side. Thank you, Alfie, Gully, Charlie, William. My remarkable, remarkable fellow nominees, and my dear friend out there, Denzel. And obviously I'm not gonna win the, uh, you know, the ski. I would like to thank my mother who is older than the Oscar. She is 99 years young next birthday, and she is watching this ceremony from the comfort of her sofa. I say to my mother: Thank you for your love and support. Put the kettle on, I'm bringing Oscar home.
Herself - Winner: Best Actress in a Leading Role: Okay. So I'm hyperventilating a little bit. If I fall over pick me up because I've got some things to say. So I think this is what Chloe Kim must have felt like after doing back-to-back 1080s in the Olympic halfpipe. Did you see that? Okay, that's what it feels like. I want to thank Martin McDonagh; look what you did. We are a bunch of hooligans and anarchists but we do clean up nice. I want to thank every single person in this building. And my sister Dorothy. I love you, Dot. And I especially want to thank my clan, Joel and Pedro "McCoen." These two stalwart individuals were well-raised by their feminist mothers. They value themselves, each other, and those around them. I know you are proud of me and that fills me with everlasting joy. And now, I want to get some perspective. If I may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight. The actors-Meryl, if you do it everybody else will, c'mon. The filmmakers. The producers. The directors. The writers. The cinematographer. The composers. The songwriters. The designers. C'mon! Okay. Look around, everybody. Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed. Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight. Invite us into your office in a couple days-or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best-and we'll tell you all about them. I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider.
Himself - Winner: Best Picture: Thank you. Thank you very much. Growing up in Mexico, as a kid I was a big admirer of foreign film. Foreign film like "E.T." or William Wyler or Douglas Sirk or Frank Capra. And a few weeks ago Steven Spielberg said, if you find yourself there, find yourself in the podium, remember that you are part of our legacy, that you're a part of a world of filmmakers and be proud of it. I'm very, very proud. I want to dedicate this to every young filmmaker, the youth that is showing us how things are done. Really they are, in every country in the world. And I was a kid enamored with movies, and growing up in Mexico I thought this could never happen. It happens. And I want to tell you, everyone that is dreaming of a parable, of using genre or fantasy to tell the stories about the things that are real in the world today, you can do it. This is a door; kick it open and come in. Thank you very much.
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Picture: This movie...
[Music continues playing. At some point the stage microphone is turned off, then disappears into the stage]
Jimmy Kimmel: What did you want to say? I'll tell them.
[Kimmel leans in to hear; his body mic picks up Dale speaking]
Himself - Co-Winner: Best Picture: I just wanted to say that it's Guillermo, it's his heart. And it's everything. We thank him for letting us be a part of that.
