Jared Leto's Oscars Acceptance Speech Censored For Russian TV?? See His Offending Statement HERE And Judge For Yourself!

jared leto oscars acceptance speech russia ukraine censored

One of the most moving moments at this year's Oscars was Best Supporting Actor Jared Leto's acceptance speech.

The Dallas Buyers Club star not only paid homage to his mother and brother, he also sent out love to those suffering in the Ukraine. He said:

"To all the dreamers out there around the world watching this tonight in places like the Ukraine and Venezuela, I want to say we are here, as you struggle to make your dreams happen, to live the impossible, we're thinking of you tonight."

But on Russia's broadcast of the awards ceremony, those comments were conspicuously absent! So did Russian censors chop out the part of the speech they didn't like?

Not according to Russia's state-run Channel One! They claim they ran exactly the broadcast they were given! A spokesperson says:

"The channel aired a 90-minute international version of the Oscar ceremony, which was not to be cut and was provided by the rights holder."

Strange that they would have cut out sections of an acceptance speeches by a movie star though. You'd think they'd cut things they had surplus, like Sound categories and Liza Minelli jokes.

Maybe there were more politics in the decision than they're letting on. For whoever edited it anyway…

    Perez, did you know that in Venezuela the Oscars were banned from public TV? Precisely because thousands of Venezuelans had taken to send messages to the nominees and the actors presenting awards pleading for them to be their voice, since in that country the freedom of speech is punished by the government. A lot of people could still watch the Oscars though satelite, but those who don´t have it, missed it altogether.Jared Leto´s speech opened our hearts and gave us hope that the world now at least can wonder where is Venezuela and what is going on over there. The day after, Venezuelan government officials and news commentators made fun of Jared Leto´s words, condemned him for interfering in our politics and also, made horrible homophobic comments to try to diminish the power of his words. #SOSVenezuela
