I want to thank 'Gravity' because for many of us involved in this film, it was definitely a transformative experience ...What really sucks is that for a lot of these people that transformation was in their wisdom, for me it was [also] the colour of my hair.''

The director also thanked the film's stars and stressed how many of the people who had been involved behind the scenes are the ones responsible for its huge success.

He added: ''I want to share this with all the wise people who made this happen. My amazing son and co-writer, Jonás Cuarón, Sandra Bullock, Sandy, you are 'Gravity', you are the soul and heard of the film, the most gifted collaborator, and one of the most amazing people I've ever met ... George Clooney for your absolutely trust ... the wise people at Warner Brothers.''
