Cheers to Joaquin Phoenix for Powerful Oscars Speech



Joaquin Phoenix made a powerful acceptance speech at Sunday’s Academy Awards after winning the Oscar for lead actor for his performance in the movie Joker. Phoenix spoke deeply from the heart, including about giving “voice to the voiceless,” addressing the “distressing issues that we are facing collectively,” and rejecting the domination of one group by another and the plunder of the natural world—and doing so in a spirit of love, compassion, and helping people grow, not canceling them out. It was a moving antidote to the prevailing me first/America First/cancel culture.
