"We must follow our dreams because we have one life to live and one soul and this soul is happy today to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press," Jon Batiste said in what appeared to be a pre-recorded victory speech. "Pixar, thank you for the work and the collaboration, and everybody involved in creating the masterpiece that touched people across the world."

"And I'd like to thank God for music and film and the togetherness that it brings when put together in such innovative and collaborative ways as this has been."
