It’s really hard to accept this award, there’s a lot of talent on this stage and there’s a lot of talent that also isn’t here. It’s also hard to accept because when I start doing this I did it for the inherent joy of making music … So I’m a little bit uncomfortable up here, but with that discomfort I do have a sense of gratitude. I want to say thank you to all the nominees and all the non-nominees who aren’t here and will never be here … I also want to say thanks to all the voters, sweet hookup.
