Natalie Portman won the Oscar Award for best actress in her leading role in Black Swan. Here’s the transcript challenge. Can you give a full transcript of her acceptance speech? Let me choose a fragment for you (from 00:23 until 1:05).  A couple of tricky words but all in all if you are an advanced student you should be able to do fine.

OK, here’s the transcription:

Thank you so much to the Academy, this is insane. And I truly sincerely wish that the prize tonight was to get to work with my fellow nominees. I’m so in awe of you. I’m so grateful to get to do the job that I do. I love it so much. I want to thank my parents, who are right there, first and foremost for giving me my life and for giving me the opportunity to work from such an early age and showing me everyday how to be a good human being by example and I want to thank my team…

Thanks, Rafa. The first video I posted is no longer available but I just uploaded a new one.

Let me try Daniel… but I must say that I can’t watch the vieo on the blog, so I have found the video on youtube (I hope it’s the same). I haven’t the full transcript, in spite of the fact that I’m a “supposed” advanced student, but I’m not, I’m just a beginner. Anyway:

“Thank you so much to the Academy, this is insane,and I truly sincerely wins the prize to me, wish to get to work with my fellow nominees, I’m so enough you and I’m so grateful to get to do the job that I do, I love it so much, I wanna think my parents who are right there ……..,for giving me my life, for giving me the opportunity, and to work from such an early age and showing me how to be a good human being by example”.

And this is how it sounded to me….

thanks for your contribution, Jesús. I won’t be making any corrections yet to give other people a chance. You’ll see a full transcript of it in about 4 or 5 days. Anyone else up to the challenge?
