There were a bunch of fun (Hugh and Beyonce dancing old school) and touching (Ledger’s family’s acceptance speech) moments. But there was only one raw, politically and personally (to all of us) moment: the Best Actor acceptance speech so closely following the passage of California’s Prop 8.
Notice Sean Penn’s shaking hands, holding that slip of paper. Notice his lack of shyness in using the word ‘Shame.’ There was also a great speech by Lance Black, under BONUS below.
BONUS, Lance Black’s speech (gets great at 130).
