Joaquin Phoenix Oscar 2020 Speech for Best Actor
You may not believe it, but now that I’m writing this, I haven’t even watch the movie “Joker” yet. I’m not very into film, I have watched a lot of good movies tho. But every year I follow Oscars, Grammys and Baftas, the Golden Globe.
Every time I watch them, I wait to see if those who hold the microphone say something out of the festival. In fact, I wait to see if anyone is saying something from my heart. But Joaquin Phoenix, after receiving the Academy Award for Best Actor, said something that made me feel very unison with him. I feel how much he looks like me, and how he has found words to express his feelings, this is a talent. If I were him, I probably would have said something similar, this would have been the best talk of all festivals I’ve watched this year.
Where he says a lyrics from his brother, I also wept with him, it seems that he witnessed his brother’s death from drug overdose. I translated this video to Persian.
Please share. His words must be heard.
