FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING!!

LORD OF THE RINGS:
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
Andrew Lesnie--cinematography

Speech
Right... [pulls out written notes.] It's the concierge's card from L'Ermitage. I'd like to thank the Academy and New Line. I'd like to thank Mark Ordesky and Carla Fry. Peter Jackson, who is a sensational person to work with. Fran Walsh and Barrie Osborne for giving me the opportunity to work on an amazing project. I had the privilege of working with a really sensational cast and terrific crews, predominantly New Zealand. I want to send my love to my partner Bronwen and my sons Jack and Sam who are probably still at school in Sydney. I just want to say Australia and New Zealand are terrific places to grow up, and great to work in and great to live in. And last of all, I want to dedicate this to the late Brian Bansgrove, who was the chief lighting technician on LORD OF THE RINGS, on the trilogy. And Brian, this is for you. Thank you.
Additional Thanks
New Zealand D.P.s Al Guilford, John Cavill, Nigel Bluck, Simon Raby, Alex Funke, Richard Bluck, Spotty, Harry, Dave Brown, Allan and Shirley Lesnie.

LORD OF THE RINGS
Peter Owen and Richard Taylor--makeup

Speech
Taylor: We have been on the most amazing journey together due in part to the vision of Peter Jackson, the camaraderie of Barrie Osborne, the incredible support of Mark Ordesky, the faces and bodies of the actors who went through hours of makeup. My journey has been made whole by the love of my partner Tania Rodger and the wonderful genius of the small group of young New Zealanders that have gathered around us to make this so possible. Thank you everyone for helping us support this cause tonight. It's a lovely day. Thanks.
Owen: I just want to say I don't know why anyone gave me the job in the first place. I'm still recovering from that. I got an opportunity to go to the most beautiful country on earth, in my opinion, work with a genuine fellowship of people and torture a lot of actors. I can't thank the Academy enough for this. It's, it's delirium. Thank you.
Additional Thanks
Owen: Caroline Turner, Peter King, Noriko Watanabe, Jessica Lalande, Debbie Fitzpatrick, Elizabeth Pick, Tina French, Gail Taylor, Louise Leonard, Jeremy Woodhead, Noreen Wilkie, Rick Findlater

This is incredible. Thank you to the members of the Academy. I had the good fortune of having such fantastic collaborators on this project. Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens who guided me on an amazing journey through Middle Earth.

Thanks to Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne, Mark Ordesky, Paul Broucek, Barrie Osborne, everybody at, the crew in Tuxedo. I love you all. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much to the Academy. I was so lucky to have Peter Jackson, as well as Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, guide me on an incredible journey through Middle Earth, a journey rewarding on so many levels. It is immensely gratifying to have the oportunity to express musically the worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien, a dream come true. Now to be rewarded in this way is both humbling and exhilarating!
Especially thanks to my incredible wife Elizabeth and daughter Mae, for their unwavering love and encouragement and for continuing to make my life fun.
I have many people to thank, foremost Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne for believing in this film from the start. Mark Ordesky for his strength and conviction.

Wow. Thank you so much to the Academy and you're giving us an incredibly overwhelming night. We just appreciate it so much.

Your collaboration and your partnership and your support just gave me the most incredible working experience of my life. To Barrie Osborne, our producer, thank you so much, Barrie, for just being there every day and supporting us. To a wonderful cast, and a wonderful crew in New Zealand, everybody that made my working days so enjoyable. It was just there when I needed it to be there. And the actors were just doing such a wonderful job. And I just want to thank two very special people that when I was 8 years old I made films at home on a Super-8 camera that my mum and dad had bought for me.

Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens & Peter Jackson
"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"--adapted screenplay

Speech
Philippa Boyens:
Okay. We grew up loving these books. We had no idea that we were gonna go gray trying to make them into movies. And we have so many people that we need to thank, but the first person we absolutely must thank is Professor J.R.R. Tolkien. Without him we wouldn't be standing here. I want to thank my parents John and Jane Boyens who gave me those books to read. My wonderful brother David, my sister Nicki, my beautiful children Calum and Phoebe, and Ken Kamins, Barrie Osborne, Howard Shore thank you so much for everything that you've done for us. Most of all, I want to thank these two people standing behind me.

Peter Jackson:
Thank you. Thank you New Line Cinema, Mark Ordesky especially for all your script support along the way. We want to say hi to our kids Billy and Katie for putting up so much with mom and dad working on this film all their lives. Because they're only 7 and 8 years old. And I especially just lastly want to thank our wonderful cast who just got their tongues around this rather awkward text and made it come to life with such emotion and passion and heart. So thank you very, very much.
Peter Jackson
"The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King"--picture

Speech
Peter Jackson:
Just waiting for Fran to get her Oscar. There we go. This is just unbelievable. I'm so honored, touched and relieved that the Academy and members of the Academy that have supported us have seen past the trolls and the wizards the hobbits and are now recognizing fantasy this year. Fantasy is an f-word that hopefully the five second delay won't do anything with. I just want to say a very few quick words especially to the people of New Zealand and the government of New Zealand and the city councils and everybody who supported us the length and breadth of the country. Billy Crystal is welcome to come and make a film in New Zealand any time he wants. A special thanks to Peter Nelson and Ken Kamins, who were with me right from the days of "Bad Taste," and "Meet the Feebles" which were wisely overlooked by the Academy at that time. And I especially want to pay tribute to our wonderful producer, Barrie Osborne. And I'd please like him to say a few words.
Barrie Osborne:
It's a great honor to be here. I started out in the business 35 years ago getting people coffee. And I wonder if the fact that I dated Billy Crystal's cousin so many years ago has anything to do with this. But it is really a great pleasure to be in such great company. Uh-oh, I'm in trouble now. To be nominated with these four other great films and after these many years to receive this award is really a thrill for all of us and we all thank the Academy. It's really a tribute to the talents of all the people both in front of the camera and behind the camera that we win this award. I want to thank, in particular, my partner Carol, my beautiful daughter Danielle and my 87-year-old dad who's out there in the back somewhere here to celebrate this with us. I want to thank, also, J.R.R. Tolkien and also the fans that supported us on this journey. And of course, Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne whose courageous venture allowed us to make this film and their support throughout the journey, and Mark Ordesky, who worked alongside of us throughout and became a great film -- a great friend, sorry. And of course to Peter Jackson, who was never satisfied with 100%. But by his example of pushing for 110%, he inspired all of us to do our utmost to make these films and bring them to the screen. And finally, to Weta, who is in Chicago, in Wellington, New Zealand, and to the production team who are in the Port Nicholson Yacht Club, it's time to celebrate.

17 for 30--not a bad record at all--enjoy my fellow TORnsibs!! My only regret is that I was not at the Return of the Ring party in Los Angeles on the 29th of February in 2004!!
