Incredible. Ellen, I love you. To my fellow nominees, I’m so proud to share this journey with you. I’m in awe and have so much respect for you all. To the Academy, thank you.
In 1971, Bossier City, Louisiana, there was a teenage girl who was pregnant with her second child. 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 her kids to be creative, to work hard and to do something special. That girl is my mother and she’s here tonight.
And I just want to say, I love you, Mom. Thank you for teaching me to dream.
To my brother, Shannon, the best big brother in the world, you’re a true artist. Thank you so much for sharing this insane and amazing adventure that is 30 Seconds to Mars, and for being my best friend. I love you. Thank you.
To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here and as you struggle to… to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible… We’re thinking of you tonight. …
And this for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you love, tonight I stand here in front of the world WITH you and FOR you. Thank you so much and goodnight.
When we lived on the hill.
“Peyton Sawyer will become Peyton Scott”.
Lucas wrote this in the 8th grade. I remember him talking about her constantly and not just in the 8th grade, in the 9th grade, in the 10th grade, in the 11th grade and finally in our Junior Year, Lucas gathered the courage and talked to Peyton for the first time, right here at this lake, and she was a bitch.
He said “Haley, I talked to her” and when I asked him if the fantasy was finally over he could finally admit that Peyton Sawyer was human after all.
And he said “No, Peyton Sawyer is not human. She’s an angel, and she’s my angel.”
I believe in true love, I believe in love at first sight, I believe love conquers all. That doesn’t mean there’s not gonna be hard days, difficult things to deal with because there will be. But finding that person who does it for you and knowing that that person loves you back, it makes everything so much easier. Peyton Sawyer will become Peyton Scott. That was the dream and here we are: ten years later. And we all get to witness today a dream come true.
adam driver is a fucking dream.
Four otps: Nathan & Haley (always and forever) [1/4]"If that’s what it takes, I’ll let you in. It’s just, sometimes I’m afraid that if I do, you’ll see the real me, the guy I was before you. I’m not proud of that person, okay, the one that I used to be, but..if I have to be that guy to keep you safe, then that’s who I’m gonna be. Look, if you want me to apologize for defending you, or for fighting back when somebody hurts you, then I can’t do that. I won’t do that, okay, because the truth is…that’s a guy I’ll never be. A guy that just stands by and watches while the world hurts you."
