“I just want to thank everyone who worked on this film, especially our family back home and our second family in London at Apple Corps,” said Jackson, 60, upon accepting the award during the ceremony, as reported by meeting.

“This would not have been possible without the tireless support of Paul, Ringo, Olivia and Julian [Lennon]Yoko and Sean [Lennon] who were always there with their support and love.

He ended with a respectful nod to the Fab Four: “Finally, a big thank you to the Beatles. Thank you for the 60+ years of being more positive, exuberant, happy… Your music is so deep and I think it’s actually embedded in our DNA.”

His goal: “I didn’t want to make a film about the Beatles breaking up,” Jackson admitted during Deadline’s Contenders TV: The Nominees panel last month. “It’s not a film about a band breaking up – it’s about a band trying not to break up”

Jackson, who served as director and producer, received 60 hours of footage and 150 hours of audio from the original film Let It Be, which chronicled the making of the album of the same name, released in May 1970.

From there he broke it down to a running time of almost eight hours, consisting of three episodes between two and three hours, each includes approximately 21-day weekly periods of studio time.

While Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s original Let It Be documentary, which won an Oscar for Best Music (Original Song Score), was entirely shaped by tensions between the Beatles that led to their split, Jackson’s version showed a more upbeat side to the production of the classic Beatles album.

“I didn’t want to do the film about the Beatles breaking up,” Jackson admitted during Deadline’s Contenders TV: The Nominees panel last month. “It’s not a film about a band breaking up – it’s about a band trying not to break up.”
