The Imitation Game's Graham Moore Oscar Speech | Video

Watch the Most Unforgettable Speech From the Oscars

You may not know the name Graham Moore, but if you were watching the Oscars, you won't soon forget his speech. He accepted the award for best adapted screenplay for The Imitation Game, and he seized the opportunity to speak on a very personal issue. "When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself," he began. "I felt weird and different and I felt like I did not belong. And now I'm standing here, so I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she's weird or she's different or she doesn't fit in out there. Yes, you do. I promise you do. Stay weird, stay different, and when it's your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the message to the next person who comes along." Kudos to Moore for being so vulnerable, and you can watch the speech below.
