At long last, Gary Oldman has won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in “The Darkest Hour.” And he couldn’t’ve been happier:
This is the best Oscar speech ever because he’s just happy that he won. #Oscars

But what made his speech especially poignant and unique was this:

“I’ve lived in America for a long time and I am deeply grateful” — Gary Oldman on winning Best Actor #Oscars

Gary Oldman wins Best Actor. #Oscars90“I’ve lived in America for the longest time and I’m deeply grateful…for the gifts it has given me…my home..my life, my family and now Oscar”

How refreshing to hear a celebrity stand on the Oscars stage and say something good about this country. Maybe Hollywood isn’t ready to hear something like that:
Oldman thanks America. And gets no applause.

Their silence is says it all.
That’s horrible :(

But for a lot of people, it’s a welcome change.
Props to Gary Oldman for thanking America when he accepted the Oscar for his role as Winston Churchill

Gary Oldman thanked America first and then Winston Churchill — most gracious #Oscars speech in years.

Finally someone on the Oscars thanks America for all it has done for them instead of slamming our country! Thank…
