Mark Boal, "Zero Dark Thirty" writer/producer (Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay)
"Thank you to the Academy for these incredible honors. And thank you to the writers who have honored me today with their generosity and to the academy for the Best Picture nomination. None of us would be so honored today without the genius and remarkable talent of Kathryn Bigelow, and to her we are forever grateful."
