I left myself in the alleway.
"Thank you to the Academy for this incredible recognition. It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is due to the pain in someone else’s, so to the spirit of Patsey my thanks. Steve McQueen, thank you for bringing us this. This has been the joy of my life. I am certain that the dead are standing about and watching and they are grateful and so am I. Chiwetel, thank you for your fearlessness. Michael Fassbender, you were my rock. When I look at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid."
