The final award of the night — best motion picture, drama — went to Steven Spielberg's semi-autobiographical film "The Fabelmans."
The film documents a Jewish family, based on Spielberg's own, and the beginning of his love of moviemaking. Spielberg recalled a bit of the beginning of his career in his speech.
"I was John Cassavetes' PA on one of his movies ... and that's why I treat my PAs so kindly, because I know what it feels like," he said, referring to production assistants.
He thanked his cast and crew and joked about why he wanted to keep his acceptance speech short. "My office is on the Universal lot, and I want to stay on the Universal lot," he said. "I don't want to be the reason this goes too far into the 11:30 p.m. news in New York City."
