BONUS POST: Dustin Lance Black Accepts the Oscar for Best Screenplay for "MILK"

How amazing! He speaks beautifully, to all the gay kids out there...

Thanks Dustin!

Wasn't that so inspiring and hearfelt? Thanks for posting it!

How about Sean Penn's acceptance speech? It's in the related videos lineup after you watch Black's segment.

Good job for the cast and crew of Milk. I've yet to see the movie, and it's definitely at the top of my DVD rental pile (along with Frost/Nixon).

Yeah, Sean Penn's was good, too - the moment where he spoke of the protesters outside the theater was powerful and great - but Dustin really captured my inner Teen's heart with this!

LOVED this moment!

For anyone who wants to see the video, it has been removed by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but they just wanted it on their own account. So, you can go here to see it:

It was so nice to see this! Maybe I am a sentimental fool, but it made me cry. Thanks for sharing this with us.
