88th Oscars Onstage Speech Transcript: Costume Design

CATEGORY: Costume Design
SPEECH BY: Jenny Beavan
FILM: Mad Max: Fury Road




What another lovely day. Very quickly, if Iain Smith, our amazing executive producer from Scotland hadn’t sent me a text saying, “Whatcha doing at the moment,” and then got me on a plane out to meet George Miller and Doug Mitchell, I wouldn’t obviously be standing here. It was a year of our lives in the Namibian desert. We had the most amazing crew. I hope that, I heard that they were on ticker tape, I thought the names were going on the screen. But honestly if anybody wants to know more about any of them, just get in touch with me through my wonderful agents Wayne Fitterman from William Morris and Sue Latimer from ARG. But it was an incredible experience. I just want to say one quite serious thing, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, but actually it could be horribly prophetic, “Mad Max,” if we’re not kinder to each other and if we don’t stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen.
