Sam Smith Bags An Oscar For 'Best Original Song'

Posted at February 29th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

‘Academy Awards’ is currently the most trending topic on all social media handles. Apart from Leonardo DiCaprio, taking over the internet with the funny memes and sincere wishes around his first ever Oscar after six nominations, another person who is stealing the lime light is Sam Smith. The English singer-songwriter won an Oscar for ‘Best Original Song’ for “Writings On The Wall” from the Bond movie ‘Spectre.’

In his acceptance speech, the singer dedicated his first ever Academy Award to the LGBT community and referenced a quote by Ian McKellen from a Guardian interview: “I read an article a few months ago by Sir Ian McKellen and he said no openly gay man had won an oscar. If this is the case, even if it isn’t the case, I want to dedicate this to the LGBT community around the world. I stand here tonight as a proud gay man and I hope that we can all stand as equals one day.” Which by the way is not the case as we are well aware of Academy Award winners Dustin Lance Black, Bill Condon, Alan Ball, Stephen Sondheim, Elton John to name a few gay male recipients. Nonetheless, we congratulate Sam Smith for the big win.
