Three Oscars for Bourne Ultimatum, Kimmel response

  • The Bourne Ultimatum won the three Academy Awards it was nominated for - details here, with a full list of winners here. The leading film, No Country For Old Men, only received a total of four Oscars. Casey Affleck, George Clooney and Amy Ryan did not win in their nominated categories.

    The Bourne Ultimatum, the Matt Damon thriller that many thought was overlooked because of its late-summer release, took three Oscars: film editing, sound editing and sound mixing.

    Sound Editing winner: "The Bourne Ultimatum" (Universal) Karen Baker Landers and Per Hallberg

    Sound Mixing winner: "The Bourne Ultimatum" (Universal) Scott Millan, David Parker and Kirk Francis

    Film Editing winner: "The Bourne Ultimatum" (Universal) Christopher Rouse

  • Editor Christopher Rouse included Matt in his acceptance speech - a report is here. Last year Matt was recognised in Martin Scorsese's acceptance speech.

    Christopher Rouse: Forty-eight years ago, my father was privileged enough to receive an Oscar, and I'm deeply, deeply honored that you put me in his company tonight. To the brilliant Paul Greengrass, to Frank Marshall, thank you, thank you, thank you. To everybody in post-production, led by my good friend and colleague, Mark Fitzgerald, each and every one of you share in this award with me. To Universal Pictures, to the Academy, my deepest, deepest thanks. To the amazing Matt Damon, thank you. And to my family, especially Anne, Anno, Ava and Fiona. My kids, I love you. Thank you so, so much.
