Academy Awards thank Lowell

At Sunday night's Academy Awards, Christian Bale won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Lowell boxer Dickie Eklund. The Fighter short right here in Lowell, home of the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds also garnered an award for Melissa Leo for Best Supporting Actress.

This is a special movie for those of us at the registry of deeds...on August 10 and 11, 2009 the cast spent two days filming at our work place, the Lowell Superior Courthouse.

Below is Christian Bales' heartfelt acceptance speech in which he thanks the City of Lowell at the Academy Awards...
