Graham Moore won Best Adapted Screenplay for “The Imitation Game” at Sunday’s Oscars, and he used the win to give a powerful speech about suicide awareness and depression.
“I tried to commit suicide at 16 and now I’m standing here,” he said. “I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she doesn’t fit in anywhere. You do. Stay weird. Stay different, and then when it’s your turn and you are standing on this stage please pass the same message along.”
