Discours prononcé lors de la remise de l’Oscar

Thank you.

This is an amazing honor. I feel you’re also honoring the people of Chernobyl, who are suffering the effects of radiation still, 18 years later after the world’s worst accident at the reactor.

I could not have made this film without Adi Roche. She’s up there. She heads the Chernobyl Children’s Project and they are saving lives every day. Adi is a true hero. Sheila Nevins from HBO has been a wonderful mentor and she’s an amazing woman and I wouldn’t be standing here without her.

It’s not easy to stand here. Dr. William Novick also saves the lives of children in Belarus and all over the world with the International Children’s Heart Foundation. Angie Kenny is also here. She’s my friend and worked on the film. And I want to thank her. I want to thank John Custodio, Rogelio Velasco.

I want to thank my mother, who’s here with me tonight. She’s smiling back there. For everything. My father, who’s home in Pearl River. For being there for me. All my brothers and sisters.

I have a big family. I won’t name them all. But they’re all here and I love them all and i thank them for their support.

Thank you very much.
