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.

"And by the grace of hundreds of artists all over the world working thousands and thousands of hours, we're standing up here and we appreciate that and we want to thank the Academy for recognizing them."
