I wonder what it was that Ang Lee said at the end of his speech. Was it in Mandarin Chinese?

What if he said something like, "First the Oscars, next we conquer Washington D.C.!!!" or, "I just farted on stage at the Academy Awards!!!"

Ang Lee was paying tribute to his homeland.

I'm all for that. My comments were in jest.

That being said, I'd like the exact translation, just out of curiosity's sake.

Right before that he said something about Taiwan and Hong Kong, so maybe it was controversial and political?

Maybe he was just mentioning Taiwanese and Hong Kong film industries, there must be some reason why he prefers working in the West.

I will ask my girlfriend, she is Taiwanese and they are very proud of Mr Lee.

I kept on telling everybody around me that Ang Lee is Sulu, because he looks just like him.

More money and wider audience? Higher prestige?
