I would like to thank the Academy, or at least Sean Hackbarth, for this award. Honestly, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

Now, if something miraculous, really kind of bloglike could happen here where we could send all kind of love and truth and kind of sanity to Hu Jintao right now in Beijing — that he will take his troops and take the Chinese away from Tibet and allow these people to live as free independent people again, that would be swell. As long as it just happens kind of magically and we don’t have to send any troops in or anything violent like that.
