you to all of you in this room. i have to congratulate the other incredible nominees this year for their unbelievable performances.

the very onset of my career, mr. jones for casting me in my first film, mr. scorsese for teaching me so much. to mr. rick yorn, thank you for helping me navigate my way through this industry. to my parents, none of this would be possible without you. my friends, i love you. and i want to say this. making "the revenant" was about man's relationship to the natural world. a world that we felt in 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. climate change is real. it is happening right now. it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work together and stop procrastinating. we need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity, for the
for the billions and billions of underprivileged people who will be most affected by this. for our children's children and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. i thank you all for this amazing award tonight. let us not take this planet for granted. i do not take tonight for granted. thank you so very much. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen please welcome, oscar winner morgan freeman. >> the moviemaking process is complete. the picture that hits the big screen is the result of collaboration by dedicated practitioners of the art, many of whom we recognized tonight. writers, directors, designers,
artists, editors, composers, actors and now, of course, the producers who guide the process from the first glimmer of an idea to the final fadeout. our last award honors that magical realization. once again, here are the nominees for best picture. "brooklyn." "room." "spotlight." "bridge of spies." "the big short." "the revenant." "the martian." "mad max: fury road."
