We have a special award at the Foundation. We're not spendthrifts with it. It's very hard to earn. Anne is really a a co-creator of this award. But it took Anne nearly 2 years of trial and error, very difficult, 3 different versions, to find someone who could make the award to our specifications and finally found the company that produces the Oscars to make it for us.

Although no one has done more to earn it than my mother, the real reason we're awarding "The Emperor Has No Clothes" award to Anne now is because we know she will miss him. It's on display at the top of our staircase at work, and we enjoy seeing him every day. It won't take up much space, Mom. This Emperor belongs with you!
