I would like to thank the Academy, the Hollywood Foreign Press, my agent, my lawyer, oh, and also my husband and children, without whom this film would not have been possible.
You will never get back the six minutes of your life that you spend watching it. (I discovered there is a reason most Hollywood movies are not edited by the actors' mothers.) But whether you watch it or not, you must tell me that you laughed, you cried, it was better than Cats, because I spent an embarrassing amount of time teaching myself how to use iMovie to make this thing. I normally say that this blog is for myself and my family, regardless of whether anyone else reads it or leaves a comment, but this is an exception. Further blogging shall be suspended until I have received sufficient accolades.
And to think, I have numerous friends with children Waylon's age who have not embarked on capturing those children learning to walk in the form of a nearly full length feature film. Seriously, I am somewhat embarrassed by what I have created here, yet happy with it, too. It is an inspirational tale of perseverance and triumph that I hope reaches those who most need lifting up this week. (You know who you are.)
