Listening to Joaquin an idea seeped in, a question, what if Joaquin has been working as an actor towards a win so he could have the world watching to give this speech. This is one of those for the books.
In a strange way, I almost see Joaquin funhouse-mirroring the character he won his Oscar playing: Joker — only in this case Joker has looked into the mirror and sees his undistorted self.
“Run to the rescue with love, and peace will follow.”
Joaquin, I love you in either form. THANK YOU for what you do and thank you for who you are.
