    Not a single mention of Sandra Bullock’s beautiful speech and tribute to her late mom & fellow nominees, not to mention she was pushing for equality on the stage 10 years before others started to make a (fake) habit of it.

    But there’s so many people to thank. Not enough time, so I would like to thank what this film is about for me which are the moms that take care of the babies and the children no matter where they come from. Those moms and parents never get thanked.

    I, in particular, failed to thank one.

    So, if I can take this moment to thank Helga B. for not letting me ride in cars with boys ’til I was 18, because she was right. I would’ve done what she said I was gonna do. For making me practice every day when I got home — piano, ballet, whatever it is I wanted to be. She said to be an artist, you had to practice every day; and for reminding her daughters that there’s no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual orientation that makes us better than anyone else…We are all deserving of love. So, to that trailblazer, who allowed me to have that. And this. And this…”

    He seems to be one of the many people irrationally hated on this website, but I thought Jared Leto’s was fantastic.

    In addition to those already mentioned, (Bong Joon-Ho for Director, Allison Janney, the queen that is Olivia Colman, Emma Thompson for S&S), I really liked Rami Malek’s speech with the eloquent and heartfelt way he spoke about his family and about needing more diverse storytelling. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s speech with their youthful exuberance has always been a favourite too.

    I remember watching it live and still get chills thinking of it. Maybe it was not technically an acceptance speech since she was the subject of the doc and not the producer, but I don’t care. It is by far the best. Nothing else is close.
