Producers Mel Gibson, Alan Ladd, Jr. and Bruce Davey win the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1995 for Braveheart. Sidney Poitier presents the award.

We’ve only got forty-five seconds and I don’t want to hog the limelight from these two gentlemen who really deserve the statue. Thank you again, all those people I thanked before. And I owe a special debt of gratitude to Bruce here, and Alan.
