Jared Leto Gave A Shoutout To Ukraine In His Oscar Speech

While some may disagree with the politics of "Dallas Buyers Club," it can't be denied that Jared Leto gave an incredible speech upon receiving an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

Accepting his golden statue for playing Rayon, a transgender woman living with AIDS, Leto began with a moving tribute to his mother and ended by dedicating his award to those in Ukraine, Venezuela, and to victims of AIDS.

"To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight, in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela," Leto said. "This is for the 36 million people who have lost the battle to AIDS and to those of you who have ever felt injustice to who you are or who you loved. I stand here with you."
