Oscars: Howard Shore Acceptance Speech
Winner, Music (Score): LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
This is incredible. Thank you to the members of the Academy. I had the good fortune of having such fantastic collaborators on this project. Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens who guided me on an amazing journey through middle earth. It was just a tremendously rewarding performance to translate the words of Tolkien into music. And I feel blessed to be part of this production. I want to thank my wife Elizabeth and daughter May, whose love and support are incredible to me, and have just guided me on my journey. Thanks to Bob Shaye, Michael Lynne, Mark Ordesky, Paul Broucek, Barrie Osborne. Everybody, the crew and Tuxedo. I love you all. Thank you very much.
