Charlie Mackesy and Matthew Freud

MATTHEW FREUD:  We’ve never made a film before, so this is  bewildering  beyond.  I know the protocol is to say „thank you“ a lot, but I’m British, so I’m more comfortable saying „sorry.“  So I’m really sorry to all the people who should be on this stage with us.  

This extraordinary team of Cara Speller, and Peter Baynton, and J. J., and Hannah and Izzo, and John, and our amazing cast and over a hundred animators.  

I’m also really sorry to my children, my girlfriend, and colleagues at Freud’s for, basically, being absent for the last two years while this film took flight, but this statue is for the dog, Barney, and the boy, Charlie.

CHARLIE MACKESY:  Hello.  I’m sorry.  I’ll be brief.  It’s a recurring theme.  My apologies.  I was in my village very recently, and a lady came up to me and said, I hear you’re going to that Oscar thing,“ and I said, „Yeah.“  I said, „I think I’ll need help with my clothes.“  And she said, „You will.“  It’s a recurring theme with clothing and myself.  She took a long pause, and she said, „You know, Charlie, I think it takes a lot of courage to make a film and I think when you go there, there will be a lot of very, very brave people in the same room.  And I looked and said, „Yeah, I think you’re right.“  It’s really true, and the people that I’ve worked with  they’ve tolerated me for two years, and they’re brave and kind, and thank you so much.  And thank you to my mum and my family and my dog who I’ve left behind who’s actually in the hotel  I can’t  I’m so  I wasn’t meant to say that.  I’m sorry.  

Thank you so, so much for this.  Thank you.
