"After winning Best International Feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax. “
He also quoted:
“Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that 'the most personal is the most creative.”
"That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese's films. Just to be nominated was a huge honour. I never thought I would win. When people in the US were not familiar with my films, Quentin always put my films on his list. He's here, thank you so much. Quentin, I love you.”
He ended his speech:
"And Todd and Sam, great directors that I admire. If the Academy allows, I would like to get a Texas chainsaw, split the award into five and share it with all of you. Thank you. I will drink until next morning, thank you."
