UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. We are so grateful for this honor. Little did we know making a film about jazz that jazz would teach us so much about life. Like, you know, we can’t always control what happens in the world, but, like a good jazz musician, we can try to turn that into something beautiful.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes. And certainly that’s so true for our amazing cast and crew. Every one of our collaborators made this film better at every turn, even when we were split apart by a pandemic. In fact, we couldn’t even be with Kemp Powers, our co-director who’s in L.A. right now.
KEMP POWERS: Hey, Keith and Dana. Being able to tell a universal tale that explored the meaning of life through the prism of a black man’s experiences was a special honor. And though the details are specific, I really do believe our story is universal. So many friends and strangers from all walks of life wrote to tell us how this film resonated with them and how grateful they were to be reminded the seemingly simple, everyday moments of life are often the most important. Thank you to everyone at Pixar, our partners at Disney, and, of course, our wonderfully supportive families who are helping us on this journey.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Thank you.
