Hudson's Oscar Acceptance Speech

Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I'm sorry. This moment is so much bigger than me.
This moment is for Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Old Shep. It's for the dogs that stand beside me, Air Bud, Balto, Beethoven. And it's for every nameless, faceless dog of color that now has a chance because this door tonight has been opened. Thank you. I'm so honored. I'm so honored. And I thank the Academy for choosing me to be the vessel for which His blessing might flow. Thank you.
I want to thank my manager, Dead Beat. He's been with me for eight long months and you fought every fight and you've loved me when I've been up, but more importantly you've loved me when I've been down. You have been a manager, a friend, and the only father I've ever known. Really. And I love you very much.
I want to thank my mom who's given me the strength to fight every single day, to be who I want to be and given me the courage to dream, that this dream might be happening and possible for me. I love you, Mom, so much, even though you gave up on me. Thank you. My wife, the bitch next door, who is just a joy of my life, and India, my unknown daugther, thank you for giving me peace because only with the peace that you've brought me have I been allowed to go to places that I never even knew I could go. Thank you. I love you and India with all my heart.
I want to thank everybody for believing in me. Our director is a genius. You're a genius. This moviemaking experience was magical for me because of you. You believed in me; you trusted me and you gently guided me to very scary places. I thank you. I want to thank Benjii. I could have never figured out who the heck this lady was without you. I love you. Thank you. I want to thank our producer. Thank you for giving me this chance, for believing that I could do it. And now tonight I have this. Thank you.I want to thank my agents. Thank you for never kicking me out and sending me somewhere else. Thank you. I, I, I, who else? I have so many people that I know I need to thank. My lawyers -- Okay, wait a minute. I got to take...seventy-four years here!! Ok. I got to take this time! I got to thank my lawyer, for making this deal. I need to thank lastly and not leastly, I have to thank Spike Lee because you must thank Spike Lee. Oprah Winfrey for being the best role model any dog can have. And thank you to Warren Beatty - you would seduce any dog they say. Thank you so much for being my mentors and believing in me.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
