90th Oscars Onstage Transcript: Music – Original Score
SPEECH BY: Alexandre Desplat
ALEXANDRE DESPLAT: Merci, c’est fantastique. I’m very grateful to the Academy. My mother is also turning 90 this year so I think she’d be very happy tonight. She’s Greek, by the way. Now, Guillermo, thank you. Thank you for letting the music be the voice of your characters and convey the beautiful melancholy of love. That’s for you. I wish to thank Miles Dale, Fox Searchlight and the music department at Fox. All the musicians who played on the score and those downstairs here. I wish to thank Queen Renée Fleming, Laura Engel, Ray Costa, my friend Katz. And Solrey, you elevate my music, everything I write, by your musical genius, thank you. But this is not for you, it is for our daughters, Ninon and Antonia.
