[Oscar speech] You know, when you grow up in the suburbs of Sydney or Auckland, or Newcastle like Ridley or Jamie Bell. Or the suburbs of anywhere, you know a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unobtainable. But this moment is directly connected to those childhood imaginings. And for anybody who’s on the downside of advantage and relying purely on courage… it’s possible. 

Happy 50th Birthday Russell Crowe!
