Oscars 2014: Fans React to Jared Leto’s Win and Acceptance Speech

The Oscars are finally in full swing, and the awards have finally started to be handed out. The first award of the night was the Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. While each of the actors nominated in this category are certainly deserving of the award, I think there were a lot of people who let out a collective cheer when Jared Leto was the name announced.

Once on stage, he delivered a pretty powerful speech, thanking his mother, his brother, and dedicating his award to everyone who has ever suffered and/or lost their lives to the horrific disease. After that, Twitter kind of exploded with emotion. Here are some of the fan reactions to Leto’s win and his epic speech.









Each and every one of these actors that were nominated certainly earned their opportunity to walk away with the statue, but it is no surprise that Jared Leto walked away with the statue. He delivered such a powerful performance, and really brought to light the plight of average everyday people who suffer every single day just trying to stay alive.

Make sure to check back with FanSided throughout the night as we bring you all the winners, the laughs, the tears, and everything that comes with the greatest night in all of Hollywood.
