WINNER: FILM EDITING – DUNKIRK, Lee Smith
LEE SMITH: I just want to say, this is THE most awesome thing that can happen to a guy like me. I really just want to start by thanking Christopher Nolan who, [he points to Nolan] they moved me from over there to sit with him. 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, cannot talk any quicker. I’m an editor, I should be able to this very quickly. Matthew McConaughey, awesome. Thank you.
