While accepting his Oscar, Rob Legato told the crowd:

"I didn't expect this. I know it's a huge thrill to be nominated, but it's awesome to win and it's really underrated. I really wouldn't be here for not for the genius of Martin Scorsese. It's an epic thrill to work on a movie with Marty and especially this particular movie, and the incredible collaborators all of which are nominated here tonight.
