I was here 15 years ago or something. You know, I had no idea what I was doing. Sitting in front of you all, I really was just a kid. I never thought that I would be back here. And I am because of so many of you who here tonight, because of this academy, because of so many wonderful people who extend themselves to me when they had nothing to benefit from it in Hollywood.
