Through their artistry, wherever they wrought their magic, they made us believe, in place, time, light, story, or emotion. They mentored us, challenged us, inspired us, elevated us, and made us only want to be better. Because of their particular gifts, they gave us a greater understanding of the human condition and the human heart.We lost too many of them this year, but because of the great gift of film, they will live forever.

To those who are featured here tonight, and to the many deserving others who are in our hearts, we love you, we honor you, we miss you … but most of all, we thank you.
