In his address, he humorously quipped, “I’d like to thank my terrible childhood and the Academy, in that order.” With warmth, he acknowledged his wife Susan, jesting, “I’d like to thank my veterinarian – I meant wife – Susan Downey over there.

Gratitude extended to the entire cast and crew of Oppenheimer, with a candid revelation, “Here’s my little secret. I needed this job more than it needed me. Chris knew it.” With his trophy in hand, he made his way down to the floor, offering a heartfelt shout-out to his three children.
