Acceptance Speech: FILM EDITING

SPEECH BY: Joe Walker

FILM: "Dune"

So you may not know that the words "Oscar nominated" can be used in the hands of a skilled 17 year old as an insult.  My daughter once said to me in an argument, "It's all very well for you, Oscar nominated Joe Walker."  Nell    Nell Rose, I love you with all my heart.  


And above all else, thank you, Denis.  Merci du fond du coeur.  This is a tribute to you. 


Thank you.  Thank you.
