I actually can’t breathe right now, oh my gosh. Thank you to this man here, Jimmy Napes. To all the nominees, you’re incredible. Gaga, you’re incredible. I read an article a few months ago by Sir Ian McKellen and he said that no openly gay man had ever won an Oscar, and if this is the case, even if it isn’t the case, I want to dedicate this to the LGBT community all around the world. I stand here, I stand here tonight as a proud gay man and I hope we can all stand together as equals one day. Thank you so much.
