Como ya hice en las galas del 2014 y 2015, aquí estamos de nuevo para repetir la experiencia de ver, escuchar y admirar esos discursos que se marcan los ganadores (y así apreciar sus peculiaridades y acentos). La gala de este año no me ha resultado muy emotiva, demasiadas puñaladas por un lado y otro, o tal vez puede ser que no haya estado tan atento como en anteriores ediciones. Es una opinión personal, no hace falta tomarme muy en serio 🙂
Ante todo, enhorabuena a los premiados, y a continuación, pondré los que me han resultado más estimulantes:
László Neme, director y ganador del premio a la mejor película de habla no inglesa (Son of Saul (Hungary)):
Wow, thanks to the Academy for this incredible honor. Thank you to Sony Pictures Classics, Tom Bernard and Michael Barker for supporting us. Thanks to Hungary for funding this film. I want to share this with Géza Röhrig, my main actor, and the incredible cast and crew that believe in this project when no one else did. You know, even in the darkest hours of mankind, when in the darkest hours of mankind, there might be a voice within us, that allows us to remain human. That’s the hope of this film. Thank you very much, thank you.
For thousands of years, we’ve been telling stories in the dark around a flickering light, whether a campfire or a projector. David and I do it with sound. George Miller would tell us “Mad Max” is a film we see with our ears. I knew sound could tell my story, but nothing quite like this. Sound artists are storytellers. Thank you, George. I hope to see you around the next campfire.
Leonardo DiCaprio, ganador del premio a mejor actor por The Revenant:
Thank you, thank you all so very much. Thank you to the Academy, thank you to all of you in this room. I have to congratulate the other incredible nominees this year for their unbelievable performances. “The Revenant” was a product of the tireless efforts of an unbelievable cast and crew I got to work alongside. First off to my brother in this endeavor, Mr. Tom Hardy. Tom, your fierce talent on-screen can only be surpassed by your friendship off-screen. To Mr. Alejandro Iñárritu, as the history of cinema unfolds, you have forged your way into history these past two years. What an unbelievable talent you are. Thank you to you and Chivo for creating a transcendent cinematic experience for all of us. Thank you to everybody at Fox and New Regency, in particular Arnon Milchan. You were the champion of this endeavor. My entire team. I have to thank everyone from the very onset of my career. Mr. Caton-Jones for casting me in my first film. Mr. Scorsese for teaching me so much about the cinematic art form.To Mr. Rick Yorn, thank you for helping me navigate my way through this industry. And to my parents, none of this would be possible without you. And to my friends, I love you dearly, you know who you are.
And lastly, I just want to say this: Making “The Revenant” was about man’s relationship to the natural world, a world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this, for our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.
Mark Rylance, ganador del premio a mejor actor de reparto (secundario) por Bridge of Spies:
I’ve always just adored stories, hearing them, seeing them, being in them, so for me to have the chance to work with, I think, one of the greatest storytellers of our time, Steven Spielberg, it’s just been such an honor. And unlike some of the leaders we’re being presented with these days, he leads with such love that he’s surrounded by masters in every craft on his film, every craft, not the least, Mr. Tom Hanks. People, I’m so pleased that our film has been nominated so many times, and as a face of the film, I meet many people in the streets and it’s lovely to have them, they’re always saying to me, “would it help?” and all that stuff. And I think, if you ever wondered about acting with Tom Hanks, would it help. The answer’s clearly yes.I want to just say thank you to my fellow nominees. I don’t know how they separate my acting from your glorious acting in these wonderful films that you’re in, which everyone must see.I don’t know how they separated the five of us from all the other supporting actors who are making films at the moment. It’s a wonderful time to be an actor and I’m proud to be part of it. Thank you.
What another lovely day. Very quickly, if Iain Smith, our amazing executive producer from Scotland hadn’t sent me a text saying, “Whatcha doing at the moment,” and then got me on a plane out to meet George Miller and Doug Mitchell, I wouldn’t obviously be standing here. It was a year of our lives in the Namibian desert. We had the most amazing crew. I hope that, I heard that they were on ticker tape, I thought the names were going on the screen. But honestly if anybody wants to know more about any of them, just get in touch with me through my wonderful agents Wayne Fitterman from William Morris and Sue Latimer from ARG. But it was an incredible experience. I just want to say one quite serious thing, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, but actually it could be horribly prophetic, “Mad Max,” if we’re not kinder to each other and if we don’t stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen.
