This Is An Oscar's Acceptance Speech EVERYONE Should Hear
Oscar speeches—some love them, some hate them. Sometimes we eagerly await music to cue the happy Oscar winners off the stage, but other times even the composers are astounded by the lucky recipients’ words of grace and wisdom. That’s exactly what happened in 2015 when Graham Moore won the Academy for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Imitation Game. An overjoyed Moore announced that Alan Turing, the focus on the film, never got the chance to be rewarded for his work on stage, but he did. Moore then confessed that he attempted suicide at 16 because he felt weird and left out. Now he wanted the moment to be for everyone out there that feels the same way he once did.
“Stay weird, stay different and when its your turn and you’re standing on the stage, please pass this moment for the next one that comes along,” Moore told the audience and viewers before being met with a standing ovation. What an amazing speech and words of advice!
