Academy Award Winner for Best Adapted Screenplay
Cider House Rules

"Well, you must be trying to get me to reconsider my day job.  I want to thank the Academy for this honor to a film on the abortion subject.  And Miramax for having the courage to make this movie in the first place.  But especially my Janet, my children, Colin, Everett, and Brendan.  Thank you, Brendan, for coming all this way.  My best friend, David.  The producer Richard Gladstein, the director Lasse Halstrom, with whom I would work again in a second.  And everyone at Planned Parenthood and The National Abortion Rights League.  Okay."
