Watch: Eddie Redmayne Acceptance Speech

Sunday night’s Best Actor Academy Award went to Eddie Redmayne for his portrayal of physicist Stephen Hawking in the film The Theory of Everything.

Redmayne called himself a “lucky, lucky man” before getting overwhelmed.

“This belongs to all of those people around the world battling ALS,” Redmayne said when he composed himself. “It belongs to one exceptional family: Stephen, Jane, Jonathan, and the Hawking children. And I will be its custodian. And I promise you I will look after him. I will polish him, I will answer his beck and call, I will wait on him hand and foot.”

Redmayne then went on to thank his co-star in the film, Felicity Jones, his director, James Marsh, and Working Title and Focus Features.
