[ applause ] >> thank you, jack. and welcome to the white house,
everyone. i am so honored to help introduce this year's nominees for best picture and to help celebrate the movies that lift our spirits, broaden our minds and transport us to places we have never imagined. this has been an exciting year for movies, and i want to congratulate all the nominees on their tremendous work. these nine movies took us back in time and all around the world they made us laugh, they made us weep and they made us grip our armrests just a little tighter. they taught us that love can endure against all odds and transform our lives in the most surprising ways, and they reminded us that we can overcome any obstacle if we dig deep enough and fight hard enough and find the courage to believe in ourselves. these lessons apply to all of us no matter who we are or what we look like or where we come from or who we love, but they are
especially important for our young people, every day through engagement in the arts, our children learn to open their imaginations to dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams. and i want to thank all of you here tonight for being part of that vitally important work, and now i'm going to turn it back over to you, jack, to give us the nominees. [ applause ] >> well, nobody is going to mess around with that, are they? [ laughter ] well, let's recap the outstanding nine nominees for tonight's best picture. ♪ "amou "amour," "argo," "beasts of the southern wild," "django unchained," "les miserables,"

[ laughter ] there's no one i'd rather work with. and i just want to say, you know, i was here 15 years ago or something, and, you know, i had no idea what i was doing. stood out here in front of you. really just a kid and i went out, you know, and i never thought that i would be back here and i am, because so many of you are here tonight because of this academy because of so many wonderful people who extended themselves to me when they had nothing to benefit from it in hollywood. you know what i mean? i couldn't get them a job. i want to thank them and i want to thank what they taught me which is you have to work harder than you think you possibly can, can't hold grudges, it's hard but you can't hold grudges. [ laughter ] and it doesn't matter how you get knocked down in life because that's going to happen. all that matters is you got to
