Screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher just won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for the movie “Precious“.  It was his first nomination and his first win. His acceptance speech was  a truly heartfelt speech – Believe in yourself and you can achieve. Precious the movie was one of the most provocative and deeply moving films this past year.

I don’t know what to say. This is for everybody who works on a dream every day. Precious boys and girls everywhere. All the cast and crew, anyone who’s kept believing in me. My two brothers, supported me in every way. My role models, my heroes, Buddy and Todd. My mother, Bettye, angel of my world. My father, Alphonse, who spent so much time with us and taught us everything. I’m sorry I’m drawing a blank right now, but I thank everyone.

Congratulations Geoffrey!
