Allowing us to preserve this pilgrimage for future generations was a true act of bravery and trust. We hope this award and the film?s reach means, as Colette says, that Jean-Pierre?s memory, as well as all of those who resisted, are no longer lost in the ?Night and Fog? of Dora.</p>
It?s true what they say: It really is an honor just to be nominated. And it’s an incredible moment to win. We?re humbled by this recognition from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and would like to extend our sincere congratulations to all of our fellow nominees. It?s a privilege to stand alongside you.
Though the game Medal of Honor has not received positive feedback due to0 its huge 170GB installation and other huge requirements, maybe after the this win there maybe some positive revive for the game.
