I learned a great deal from the director named Ingmar Bergman,
often to be most eloquent is to be silent.
You’re quite right.
The film we’ve just seen said it all.
I think we should say there is nominated
for the best performance by the actor…
Marlon Brando in The Godfather,
Michael Caine in Sleuth，
Laurence Olivier in Sleuth，
Peter O’Toole in The Ruling Class，
Paul Winfield in Sounder.
The winner is……
Marlon Brando in The Godfather.
I took the new award for Marlon Brando in The Godfather.
This Sacheen Littlefeather.
大家好 我是Sacheen Littlefeather
Hello, my name is Sacheen Littlefeather.
and I’m president of the National Native American
Affirmative Image Committee.
I’m representing Marlon Brando this evening.
And he has asked me to tell you
the very long speech,
which I cannot share with you presently,
bacause of time.
But I will be glad to share with the press afterwards,
that he very regretfully cannot accept
this very generous award.
And the reasons for this being
are the treatment of American Indians today,
by the film industries.
And on television in movie reruns,
and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.
I beg this time that I have not intruded upon this evening.
And that we will, in the future,
our hearts and our understandings
would meet with love and generosity.
Thank you on behalf of Marlon Brando.
