"We made this film with love, and we made it with tenderness and we made it with respect. It was all done under the direction of Pete Farrelly," Burke continued. 

"It's about loving each other despite our differences and finding out about who we are... The same people," Pete said onstage during his portion of the acceptance speech, then proceeding to shout out Green Book's leading actors, Viggo MortensenMahershala Ali and Linda Cardellini.
