ABI MORGAN: Whoa. Goodness me. This is such an incredible honor. What an amazing group of nominees. I have to thank BBC America, to BBC London. I'd like to thank Ben Stevenson (phonetic), Lucy Richer and Judd Tadlow (phonetic). And I'd like to thank Hugh Dolls (phonetic), the brilliant Jane Featherstone. The brilliant producer Ruth Kenley?Letts. And my fantastic scripter (unintelligible), Naomi De Pear. I have to also thank the brilliant cast.

When I came through immigration, the guy couldn't quite understand ?? the very nice immigration man didn't believe I was coming for the Emmys. And I might be able to show him I did come. So, thank you very much.
