although probably nobody really cares - we have also prepared an acceptance speech:
we would like to thank the Academy and it's members for the greatest honor on earth a film maker and film enthusiast can be awarded with. we would like to thank Stefan Ruzowitzky for his passion to create real and believable characters, to celebrate story telling at its best. we would like to thank the entire crew for executing all of our annoying technical remarks - resulting in better visual effects, bringing Stefan's vision to life at tvt. postproduction frankfurt. also thank you DoP Benedict Neuenfels for letting us contribute to your unique visual style and, of course, thank you Magnolia and Aichholzer Filmproduction for your trust and support.

congratulations Stefan, congratulations to everyone involved!
