Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o win their first Oscars

She was a high school dropout and a single mom, but somehow she managed to make a better life for herself and her children. She encouraged here kids to be creative and work hard and do something special. That girl was my mother and she’s here tonight. I just want to say ‘I love you mom, thank you for teaching me to dream.’”

“To all the dreamers around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I wanna say we are here and as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we’re thinking of you tonight,” Leto added.

    Congratulations to the young talents! I am always for young people, who put their soul in what they do. Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong’o deserved this award and they definitely did their best Jared Leto has stricken me with his play of the transgender character. He was very convincing and his break for 6 years was definitely in his favor.

    There are many things in the world that I am not able to understand, but it is simply impossible to live with the fact that Jared Leto who looks like something in a middle between a dork and freak has won the Oscar award but Leonardo di Caprio who is struggling for this award so many years and really did performed like wow, never got it. I can understand everything, well nearly everything, but this is already too much, my brain keeps sending me the message “fail”, and I feel like I don’t want to ever watch the Oscar Award anymore.

    I am happy for Jared Leto, he did a pretty good job in that movie, and probably that is why he got his Oscar, this is the award for the best people, as a result of their efforts, not everyone is getting it, but the ones who are not getting it though they are quite good are stimulated for even better in their life, than they can make now. I think it was very nice and profound from Jared to say all those wonderful things about his mother, I guess in the moment when he was saying them she felt the happiest woman in the world, I am sure it was very difficult for her to raise children by herself, so that was a sort of the payback for all the tears that she cried than she was losing her hope that it will become easier and better someday, that was the moment when she probably felt ultimate happy. It is good that Jared grew up being such a grateful son.

    I think Lupita Nyong is a very lucky young woman , as she managed to win the Oscar award from the first try, though there were many people before here who have tried multiple times winning this grand award, but were or not lucky as her, or not that talented. Anyway I am very happy for her, as well for Jared Leto, I think if those two have won the award than it is due to their huge work in the movie, which proves once again the fact that all of the efforts are being payback, and everything that happens, does happen for a reason. The only thing I feel miserable of, is Leonardo di Caprio not winning the award again, I mean for Christ’s sake, how unlucky should a person be in order to become one of the main male stars at Hollywood, and at the same time not winning the Oscar award, though being nominated for many, many times.
