WINNER – ANIMATED FEATURE FILM – SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE

SPEECH BY: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman, Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller

CHRISTOPHER MILLER:
There’s a lot of us.

PHIL LORD:
Oh wow. Thank you, Academy.

CHRISTOPHER MILLER:
Thank you, Sony. We share this with our fellow producers, cast, crew. There’s 800 filmmakers who pushed boundaries and took risks to make people feel powerful and seen.

PHIL LORD:
So when we hear that somebody’s kid was watching the movie and turned to them and said, “He looks like me.” Or, “They speak Spanish like us,” we feel like we already won.

PETER RAMSEY:
To our audience, thank you so much. We love you and we just want you all to know we see you, you’re powerful. This world needs you, okay, this world needs you. So please, we’re all counting on you. Thank you.

RODNEY ROTHMAN:
On behalf of everyone that made this movie, we want to thank our families, who stayed with us for four years on this. This is for you, we love you all.

BOB PERSICHETTI:
And at Fox [cut off]
