Washington D.C, Feb. 29(ANI): The Oscar evening on February 28 got political, when messages came in multiple iterations throughout the night from some of the most thoughtful artists in Hollywood.
People like Leonardo Di Caprio, Adam McKay, Jenny Beavan, Andy Serkis, Alejandro G. Inarritu and others spoke on the 2016 Presidential Race at the United States and climatic change to bring awareness among people, reports E! Online.
During his thanking speech, McKay, who shared the ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’ Oscar with Charles Randolph for ‘The Big Short,’ asked people not to vote for candidates who take money from big banks, oil or weirdo billionaires.
‘Max Max: Fury Road’ costume designer Jenny Beavan, collecting her third Oscar, invoked the winning film’s apocalyptic landscape to make a point about where the real world may be headed if we don’t change our ways and stop polluting the atmosphere.
Alejandro G. Inarritu, winner for Best Director, used a theme touched-on in ‘The Revenant’ to take a sharp jab at prejudice, xenophobia and those who would promote such a cultural climate.
“I am very lucky to be here tonight, OK? But unfortunately many others haven’t had the same luck,” he said.
Finally, the man of the evening, Leonardo DiCaprio, too speaking on the same line, asked people to collectively stop procrastination.
Adding to this, he even asked people to support leaders around the world “who do not speak for the big polluters or the big corporations, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world.”(ANI)
