Wow, thank you. This is incredible, really incredible. Thank you to the Academy for this honor of honors. They told me only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.
I'm thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing. This really is about Quentin Tarantino. You are original. You are one of a kind. The film industry would be a much drier place without you and I love the ethos you gave Cliff Booth. Look for the best in people. Expect the worst, but look for the best. Leo, I'll ride on your coattails any day, man. The view's fantastic. And to the rest of the cast and crew, Big Bad Bob Richardson, Robert Garcia, Richie, my man, Mike Mo. Hey, I also want to say, you know why we're doing all this. I think it's time we give a little love to our stunt coordinators and our stunt crews.
Listen, I'm a bit gobsmacked. I'm not one to look back, but this has made me do so. And I think of my folks taking me to the drive in to see Butch and Sundance. And loading up my car and moving out here. And Gina and Ridley giving me my first shot, to all the wonderful people I've met along the way to stand here now once upon a time in Hollywood, ain't that the truth. This is for my kids who color everything I do. I adore you.
In ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD, we're taken back to Los Angeles in 1969, where aging TV star Rick Dalton and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth struggle to make their way around an industry and a city they hardly recognize anymore. The 92nd Oscars were held on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at the Dolby® Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and were televised live on ABC and in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
