91ST OSCARS SPEECH: Jim Burke, Charles B. Wessler, “Green Book”(BEST PICTURE)

WINNER – BEST PICTURE – GREEN BOOK

SPEECH BY: Jim Burke, Charles B. Wessler, Brian Currie, Peter Farrelly and Nick Vallelonga

JIM BURKE:
Aloha. And thank you to the members of the Academy. It’s such a privilege. This is like a dream. We need to start by thanking our friends at Participant Media, who have been with us all along the way. Thanks for their belief. We can’t overlook Universal and eOne and Lionsgate and Cinetic and Angellotti. I personally want to thank Christina and Maddie and all the Burkes and all the Simpkins.

We made this film with love. And we made it with tenderness. And we made it with respect. And it was all done under the direction of Pete Farrelly. Pete, it’s been an honor, a privilege.

PETER FARRELLY:
Thank you very much. You know, he’s right, this is, the whole story, is about love. It’s about loving each other despite our differences. And finding the truth about who we are, we’re the same people. And this doesn’t start, by the way, without Viggo Mortensen, right there [points stage right to Viggo]. We have no movie, all these awards are because Viggo and Mahershala and Linda, but it started with Viggo. And I give you this, my friend. Also, you may have noticed, I didn’t get to thank a lot of people before so I’m going to jump in. I want to thank Steven Spielberg, Ron Meyer, Brian and Aileen Roberts, Octavia Spencer, Kris Bowers, Donna Langley, Jeff Small, Tom Wolfe and Manish Raval, Ellen Dumouchel, Bill Kirby, who is the first writer I ever knew, Betsy Heimann, Tim Galvin, Kwame Parker. I want to thank Cordo Wilford, I wrote because of you. And I want to thank my sister Kathy. She died a week before we started shooting this but she never left my side.

CHARLES B. WESSLER:
Hey, thanks very much for this to the Academy but I just want to dedicate this to our great friend Carrie Fisher.
