Blade Runner 2049 - Winner's Acceptance Speech, Cinematography, EE British Academy Film Awards in 2018

18 February 2018

Winner's acceptance speech by Roger Deakins for Blade Runner 2049 in the Cinematography category.

DENIS VILLENEUVE: Unfortunately Roger Deakins cannot be with us tonight. He's shooting a movie in New York right now. But he asked me to thank his crew, and his wife, James.

As director of the movie, I would like to just say thanks to our producer and to Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Cynthia Hawkins and Ridley Scott.  

Thank you for the freedom. We never have enough freedom. And, Ridley, thank you also for the inspiration. 

And I will finish by saying thank you to BAFTA for honouring my friend tonight, who is truly a master of our times and I owe him a lot. We made this movie together.
