Read the Full Transcript of Joaquin Phoenix's Moving Oscars Speech

Joaquin Phoenix won multiple awards for his work in Joker during the 2019/2020 award show season, and he’s usually accepted each award with a poignant speech. At the SAG Awards, he honored the late Heath Ledger, and shortly after accepting the award, he headed to a pig slaughterhouse. At the BAFTAs, Phoenix called for more diversity in film, and the Golden Globes saw the actor talk about climate change. He also gave a sweet shoutout to his fiancée (and Her co-star) Rooney Mara.
