Every day, I become more disillusioned with our society's unwillingness to end the abuse experienced by one in five women and one in 71 men . The Oscar-nominated singer, whose The Hunting Ground song is in contention for the best original song Oscar, was introduced to the stage by Vice President Joe Biden .
Lady Gaga's tribute to sexual assault survivors during Sunday night's Oscars is being widely celebrated on Twitter for giving a voice to those who are often discouraged from speaking for themselves. The song is a musical score from The Hunting Ground, a CNN Films documentary about the latest wave of sexual assaults on college and university campuses in the United States.
He continued: "Let's change the culture". After close to 30 seconds of standing applause , Biden thanked the crowd. "What happened to Kesha has happened to many female artists including myself", the 29-year-old singer wrote in a comment to one of her photographs with Kesha .
Rock received praise for seamlessly combining issues of race with appropriate humor. It's one thing for a black host to play with stereotypes of both white and black people to create a commentary on inclusion in the Academy Awards, especially when notable roles by black performers were not recognized by the Academy.
Josh Singer and Tom McCarthy took home the best original screenplay award for "Spotlight" at the 88th Annual Academy Awards, marking the night's first award-grabbing. " Piaget is proud of its continued partnership with Film Independent and proud to support the finest talent in independent film", said Philippe Leopold-Metzger.
Biden, introducing Lady Gaga whom he described as "courageous" and a friend, urged artists and viewers to join him in signing an online pledge, found at itsonus.org, to promise to fight against sexual assault. Kesha thanked Lady Gaga and Joe Biden for bringing awareness to sexual assault tonight at the Academy Awards. Gaga was later joined on stage by dozens of young people, holding hands in solidarity.
