FRANCES McDORMAND: Okay. Golly. Gee whiz. Hi,
I have a couple things to say. Representation.
We -- we -- we -- those tireless men and women, who represent
us truly, our desires, our dreams, our individual strengths and
our ethical beliefs, to them we owe a great deal.
To mine: Frank, Brian, Simon, full credit,
gentlemen. Full credit.
And to serving the word. When Martin wrote Three
Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, he did not sketch a
blueprint. He didn't string together a few words. He wrote,
meticulously crafted a tsunami, and then he allowed his troop
of actors to surf it into the shore. Thank you, Martin.
I also want to say, this is really great, and I thank
you. I come out of the woods every few years, and you let --
invite me to the party. But there's a lot of young ones coming
up, and they need doorstops too, let's think about that.
